One small Maple issue

Posted in Diploma thesis by Ulf on November 10, 2008

I started to use Maple here in the institute. I really like it. It saves a lot of time and does less mistakes then I would do when calculating by hand. However, from time to time, there are really nasty things.

A couple of minutes ago, the “Execute the entire worksheet”-button was grayed out. I still was able to execute every single line, but that takes some time. I saved my worksheet and restarted Maple. Then everything was alright again. Do you know under which condition Maple disables this button?

This is how it normally looks like:

maple1

This is how it looks when Maple thinks it knows better then me:

maple2

Another thing that bothered me this morning was the “2D-Input” Mode. But I switched over to the classic redish Maple input again, so that’s fine now.

Edit: I just discovered that there are two interfaces for Maple. A good one (“Classic Worksheet Maple 10”) and a bad one (“Maple 10”). Just stick to the good one. Choose Classic Worksheet Maple. :-)

    you need a 3D graphics accelerator when using the 2D input… that’s Java
