Sharing Content on the MapleCloud

You can use the MapleCloud palette to share a Maple standard worksheet, a worksheet selection or an entire Maple workbook with other users. If you share a worksheet selection, it will be added to a new worksheet that contains only the text and objects that you selected. You must be logged in to the MapleCloud Document Exchange to share content. You can share workbooks, worksheets and worksheet selections that are 1106 characters or smaller.

If you want to share content with certain Maple users only, make sure that a custom group has been created before sharing your content. For more information, see MapleCloud Groups.



In certain custom groups, group members may not have permissions to share content or view content shared by other group members. Contact your group owner for more details about your permissions.
