Export as Portable Document Format (PDF)

  

A Maple worksheet exported as a Portable Document Format file can be opened in a PDF reader such as Adobe(R) Acrobat(R). The PDF document is formatted as it would appear if the Maple worksheet were printed using the active printer setting.

  

Notes:

• 

Images, plots, and embedded components may be resized in the PDF file.

• 

In Windows and Linux, you can export text in a graphical form (suitable for publication), or as text with the appropriate font specification, which offers smaller file size and searchable text when using a PDF reader that supports that feature. You can access this option in the Export tab of the Options dialog. See Options>Export.
