Export a Plot

  

Export an inline Maple plot from a worksheet to one of the following formats: BMP, COLLADA, DAE, DXF, EPS, GIF/ANIMATED-GIF, JPEG/JPG, PDF, PNG, POV, X3D, X3DG, or WMF.

  

Maple provides a number of ways to export plots.  How Do I Export a Plot provides an overview. For information on programmatically saving a plot to a file, see plotsetup and plottools[exportplot]. For information on a specific output device, see plot/device.

  

To export a plot:

1. 

Select the plot you want to export.

2. 

From the Plot menu, select Export.

  

Alternatively, right-click (Control-click, for Macintosh) the plot you want to export. The context menu appears. Select Export.

3. 

Select a format.

4. 

Specify the location and the name of the exported file.

5. 

Click Save.

  

Notes:

• 

Formats that do not support multiple frames output only the current frame of an animation.

• 

The transparency option is ignored when exporting plot. For information about the transparency option, see plot,options and plot3d,option.

• 

Animations in Maple can be exported as animated GIFs. Select GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) from the list of formats under the Export menu item.

• 

Since the GIF format has a maximum number of colors that it can cope with, it should not, in general, be used for plots where shading or transparency are used. This includes most 3-D plots. In these cases, JPEG is a good alternative.
