According to kernelopts(version), I am using Maple 16.02, X86 64 LINUX, Nov 18 2012, Build ID 7888210 , having just updated

Maple 16.

I have a Maple worksheet with some graphs of 10^5 data points. When I export the worksheet to a pdf for inclusion in a LaTeX document (with pdfpages package, this recognizes page breaks), the file is around 100 Mb, much larger than I would like.

It seems that the file is large as a figure in the pdf is not just an image, the pdf seems to contain all of the information necessary to plot each data point individually.

Is there some way to encourage Maple 16 to treat figures as bitmaps (or something similarly much smaller than the original figures) upon exporting a worksheet to a pdf? I'll be happy for any suggestions.

NOTES:

1. This question was originally for Maple 16.00. Updating to 16.02a has not solved the problem.

2. I am suspicious that there is some bug in how Maple 16 exports figures made with "plot" to a pdf file.

When I try various methods of compressing the pdf that I've seen on the web, such as with pdftk 1.44, or ghostscript 8.70 or 9.07,  or pdf2ps followed by ps2pdf ,

error messages are returned. For example using pdftk:

pdftk input.pdf output.pdf

gives

"Done. Input errors, so no output created"

 

can we load part of a package not the package whole !? for example from physics package i only need diff tool not all of the package tools,can i do sth for that !? 

My attempt to export array data using the Browse>Export option when looking at the data fails to work as needed.

The exported data always start in cell A1 of the Excel worksheet even a different starting cell is entered into the Matrix Browser export window.

In summary, my experience is that the Matrix Browser matrix export in Maple 16 and Maple 17 ignores the information about the intended starting destination cell in the Excel file.

Does anyone find that the Matrix Browser exports to a starting Microsoft Excel cell other than A1? 

This exporting with Matrix Browser worked find in Maple 15.  It has been broken in Maple 16 and 17, including Maple 17.02.

Thanks.

 

(1) Does ModuleCopy, when automatically called from Object,  really get the a shallow copy of the object

as the first parameter in its parameter list? See below, which is copied directly from ?object,create. The

ModuleCopy has first argument new::Dollar but ModuleApply only passes its two arguments not three. I

couldn't find a reference to this feature in the docs.

Sometimes it is appealing to have a package export a procedure which does not show up when calling with().

For example, the procedure might be used elsewhere, but be otherwise so very technically obscure that nobody else would be interested. (The counter-argument is that what is good for the goose is good for the gander! If something else in Maple can make good use of it and need it, then you might too.)

Now, Maple's modules don't have the concept of "friends",...
