Question: Entering prime symbol: Eg., f'(x) so that it is equivalent to diff(f(x),x) and d/dx f(x)

Some calculus problems are worked out with the differential formatted as a function prime (f', G', etc.). How do I enter a function with the prime symbol so that Maple will treat it consistently? I recall entering f'(x) once in the legend of a Plot. The legend, as output, was in 2D format d/dx(f(x).

Another variation on my question is this: If I enter diff(x^2,x), or d/dx x^2 in 2D Maple, and calculate, I get 2x. If there a way to enter f'(x^2) to get the derivative?

 

Thanks
