Print Layout Mode
Restoring Backed Up Files
Accessibility in Maple 2022
Better Zoom in the Help System
Context Panel Updates
New Shortcut Keys
In Maple 2022, you can now work in print layout mode. This mode shows you the current worksheet as it appears for printing, enabling you to see the page boundaries as you author the worksheet.
To activate print layout mode, click the Toggle Print Layout Mode icon (
) from the main toolbar.
For more information, see Print Layout.
By default, the auto save feature saves backups of open files. If you need to recover a file from the File > Restore Backup menu, you are now provided with a list of backed up files, and can select which one to open. Previously, Maple opened all backed up files when File > Restore Backup was selected.
For more information, see Restore Backup.
Maple now has a dedicated accessibility mode which optimizes the Standard interface for users that use a screen reader. This screen reader mode is a global setting, meaning that it is remembered for the current Maple session and future sessions.
To turn on screen reader mode:
From the Tools menu, select Accessibility > Use Screen Reader Settings. Alternatively, use the shortcut key F10.
For more information, see Accessibility Features.
New in Maple 2022, when you zoom in the Maple Help System, it also changes the size of the text in the left pane. This means if you use, for instance, zoom magnification of 200%, the Table of Contents and Search Results are also magnified by that amount.
Enhancements to the Context Panel on the right-hand side of the Maple interface include:
Significant improvements to the Plot Builder. For more information, see Plot Builder.
More commands are now available in the Context Panel. The commands from the Student:-ODEs package are now available, as well as SimplifySteps from the Student:-Basics package. For more information, see Resources for Education.
The new print layout mode can be toggled using Ctrl + Shift + L (Command + Shift + L, Mac)
In the help system, use Ctrl + Tab to navigate back to the search field.
Hyperlinks in Maple now have customizable tooltips. By default, a hyperlink has a tooltip that shows the target. If preferred, you can now set this to custom text.
For example, the hyperlink at the end of this paragraph has a custom tooltip, defined as shown. Hover over the hyperlink to read the tooltip. For more information, see Insert a Hyperlink.
Linking to Local Bookmarks
In response to customer requests, we've improved the process of creating a bookmark in a worksheet and then linking to that bookmark from elsewhere in the same worksheet.
The process works as follows:
Create a bookmark in your worksheet.
Insert a hyperlink, and in the Hyperlink Properties, for Type, select Worksheet. Leave the Target field blank. From the drop-down list for Bookmark, select the bookmark you created in step 1. Click OK.
You can now smoothly complete the steps when first authoring your worksheet, or after saving and reopening the worksheet.
