Re: Collect coefficients of array variables during

Off[Part::partd, Part::pspec];

eqn1 = 10. A[[1, 1]] + b A[[1, 1]] + c A[[1, 2]] + 3. A[[1, 2]];

eqn1 // Simplify

(b+10.) A[[1,1]]+(c+3.) A[[1,2]]

If Simplify doesn't work try FullSimplify or hit it with a hammer:

Collect[eqn1, Union[Cases[eqn1, A[[__]], Infinity]]]

(b+10.) A[[1,1]]+(c+3.) A[[1,2]]
