Input Display

  

Control the appearance of expressions by selecting one of two Input display types: Maple notation and 2-D math notation. Changing this option changes the type of display used for any input after the current execution group.

1. 

From the Input display drop-down list, select Maple Notation or 2-D Math Notation. The default is 2-D Math Notation.

2. 

Click Apply to Session, Apply Globally, or Cancel.

Maple Notation

  

Use Maple Notation to display input as Maple syntax.

  

 

2-D Math Notation

  

Use 2-D Math Notation to display expressions in standard math notation.

  

 

Output Display

  

Maple provides four different formats in which to display Maple output.

1. 

From the Output display drop-down list, select one of Maple Notation, Character Notation, Typeset Notation, or 2-D Math Notation. The default is 2-D Math Notation.

2. 

Click Apply to Session, Apply Globally, or Cancel.

  

Future commands that are executed display output using the new setting.

Maple Notation

  

Use Maple Notation to display the output as Maple syntax.

Character Notation

  

Use Character Notation to display the output in a 2-D text-based character format. All of the special symbols are created using ASCII characters.

Typeset Notation

  

Typeset Notation displays the output as it would appear in typeset textbooks. In this case, you cannot edit the output.

  

Use this setting to view labels in your 2-D typeset output. For more information, see interface.

2-D Math Notation

  

Use 2-D Math Notation to display standard math.

  

Note: In the Classic worksheet interface, you can select and edit subexpressions in the output of this format. Press Enter and the changes are displayed on a new input line, ready to execute.

Typesetting Level

  

The rule-based typesetting functionality is available only when Typesetting level is set to Extended. For details, see Typesetting and Typesetting Rule Assistant.

Assumed Variables

  

Set Maple output to indicate which variables have assumptions.

1. 

From the Assumed variables drop-down list, select No Annotation, Trailing Tildes, or Phrase. The default is Trailing Tildes.

2. 

Click Apply to Session, Apply Globally, or Cancel.

No Annotation

  

When No Annotation is selected, the output of the Maple command displays variables with assumptions as regular variables.

Trailing Tildes

  

When Trailing Tildes is selected, the output of the Maple command displays variables with assumptions by appending a tilde to them.

Phrase

  

When Phrase is selected, the output of the Maple command displays variables with assumptions as regular variables, but lists any variables that have assumptions.

  

Enter the Maple command about(variablename) to display a description of the assumption for the variable variablename.

Plot Anti-aliasing

  

Plot anti-aliasing is a technique for making subtle adjustments in the color of the individual pixels that make up the curve of a plot in order to make the plot appear smoother. By default, this option is Enabled.

Font Anti-aliasing

  

You can set font display such that characters are rendered with a smoother and rounder appearance.

1. 

From the Font anti-aliasing drop-down list, select from Default, Enabled, or Disabled.

2. 

Click Apply to Session, Apply Globally, or Cancel.

3. 

Exit Maple.

4. 

Restart Maple. The new setting is enabled.

Plot Display

  

Display plots in the current worksheet (inline) or in a new plot window.

1. 

From the Plot display drop-down list, select Inline or Window. The default is Inline.

2. 

Click Apply to Session, Apply Globally, or Cancel.

  

Note: This option does not apply to plots inserted with the Insert>Plot>2-D or 3-D menu option. These plots are displayed in the current worksheet.

Default Point Probe Mode

  

The point probe displays the coordinate information for points on your 2-D plots. Use this option to select the default coordinate information to display.

1. 

From the Default Point Probe Mode drop-down list, select one of the following options:

• 

None

• 

Cursor position

• 

Nearest datum

• 

Nearest point on line

2. 

Click Apply to Session or Apply Globally.

  

For more information on the point probe modes, see Display 2-D Plot Coordinates.

Show Task Variables on Insert

  

When copying task template content to another worksheet, you have the option of indicating variables. From the Show task variables on insert drop-down list, select from Always, Only on Naming Conflict, or Never. The default is Only on Naming Conflict.

Task Content to Insert

  

With the Task content to insert option, you can copy All Content, Standard Content, or Minimal Content into the worksheet.

• 

All Content inserts all content present in the task template.

• 

Standard Content inserts all content but the Commands Used and the Description heading. This is the default setting.

• 

Minimal Content inserts only the commands or embedded components.

  

For more information, see Maple Tasks.

Automatically Display Legends in 2-D Plots

  

For 2-D plots, you can display a legend that matches each curve with a text label. To set this feature, select the Automatically display legends in 2-D plots check box. For information on customizing the text labels, see Edit a Legend.

  

Note: Legends vary in size, depending on the number of curves in the plot. There is a limit on the amount of space available for a plot legend. Therefore, if there are too many entries in the legend, some may not be displayed.

  

For information on how to display or hide the legend on a particular 2-D plot after the plot is created, see Show or Hide a Legend.

Enable Rollover Highlighting in Plots

  

When you roll over a plot with your mouse, the plot can be highlighted. To set this feature, select the Enable rollover highlighting in plots check box.

Use Hardware Acceleration for Plots

  

By default, Maple uses hardware acceleration for plots if possible, and uses a software renderer if hardware acceleration is not available.

  

To change the setting to always use the software renderer, clear the Use hardware acceleration for plots check box.

Always Insert New Execution Group after Executing

  

The Always insert new execution group after executing option controls the automatic insertion of a new execution group after Maple computes an execution group. By default, this feature is not enabled.

• 

If this feature is not enabled, Maple computes the execution group and then moves the cursor to the next execution group in the worksheet.

  

If the computed execution group is the last one in the worksheet, Maple creates a new execution group and moves the cursor to it.

• 

If this feature is enabled, Maple automatically inserts a new execution group after computing any execution group.

Show Equation Labels

  

Display equation labels in the worksheet. Each execution group generates a label that is displayed in the right-hand side of the worksheet. These labels may be referenced elsewhere in the worksheet as necessary. For instructions, see Using Equation Labels.

  

Note: Disabling this feature will affect the display of help pages and Maple worksheets that use equation label references.

Enable Self-Documenting Context Menu Evaluations

  

Self-documenting context menus automatically create a record of your actions while you solve your problem. An arrow connects input and output as the result of a context menu operation and the text describing the operation is displayed above the arrow. For more information, see Self-Documenting Context Menu.

Expose Commands Inserted from Load/Unload Package Menus

  

The Load/Unload package feature allows you to quickly load (or unload) all commands in a package. Selecting this check box merely exposes the with and unwith commands when loading and unloading the package.
