I attach a .sci file that illustrates problems I have been having with plots in SWP 6.0.26.

What can I do to overcome these?

If you change the curly

If you change the curly braces and the brackets to regular parentheses, then it is possible to plot this expression.

The same behavior is present in version 5.5.

Thanks for getting back to

Thanks for getting back to me. But I still have 2 issues.

1. Your suggestion does not work for me (on my Mac with macOS Sierra 10.12.4). Changing the curly braces and the brackets to regular parentheses in the denominator term still results in a Computation Error when I use Compute > Plot 2D > Rectangular in SWP 6.0.26 on that term alone. This applies whether I use paired (potentially expanding) parentheses or enter each open and close parenthesis separately.

2. There doesn't seem to be problem using square brackets (in place of parentheses) when the problematic term is the denominator of the fraction. What exactly are the rules about which kinds of brackets are permissible where in a computation?
