sometimes I observe extreme delays when simply entering a variable name like fooBar; right after starting a Maple session. This happens when the current directory contains a file with that name, because Maple automatically loads this file.

For example, if I create an empty file fooBar.m and start a Maple session,

> fooBar;
Error, `./fooBar.m` is an incorrect or outdated .m file

raises an error. More often however, I have some huge Maple files in the working directory and whenever I use (by chance) a variable name in the Maple session that matches a filename, Maple tries to load the corresponding file.

Is there a documentation of this behaviour and a possibility to stop this automatic loading of files?



Is it possible to set maple to fill in a header or footer for every new document I make?

Now i have to do it fot each new file by hand: 

View => Header footer ..=> 

 - select custom  - goto tab cusom headers put in the left textfield "&[File] pag. &[Page]/&[Pages]"


I'm new here and I couldn't find similar problem in this forum.

I want to use variable (red marked) with unit definite integrals but it doesn't work. I put the file with units and file without units (to check correct solution) in this post.

What to do?




Hi there,

i want to generate some plots in files in this example:

this code doesn't work. but without restart; it works fine. i passed 2 days to figure out that "restart;" was the problem.

my questions are :

1. why i have to eliminate the first line of restart;

2. how can i save my files in a directory that is in the current directory. For example i have a directory in current directory named "plotFILES".

thanks in advance for your help

Hi, I’ve recently begun using Maple 16. I just discovered a problem when trying to open my saved files. I can’t open them directly form the folder where they are saved, I get a Message saying: File could not be found, please select another file. I can accsess the same file through the recent files form within the application.

It is not a shortcut, but the original file I'm trying to open.
If it matters, I'm using windows 8 

File could not be found...

I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro (retina) with Mountain Lion and found that my Maple 12 programs would not run.  So I updated to Maple 16.  Initially all seemed to work well.  But now when i try to open a Maple .mw file, I get the message

"File could not be found.  Please select a different file."

What has happened and how can I get my programs working again?

... is finance.dll missing in Maple16 (64 bit), as it was in Maple15 (64 bit), so you have to install the 32 bit version instead?

Is it possible to move the finance.dll-file from Maple16(32-bit) to Maple16(64-bit)?


Suppose I have a file of text that I would like to read into a Maple (16) worksheet as a string. (I have in mind encrypting the string using the RSA encryption scheme.)

If I paste the text directly into the worksheet and surround it by ",  I have no problem, but if I try to read, for example, a file some_text.txt using a command like

I am using Maple 13 (hoping to upgrade soon) under Windows 7.

The open file dialog looks a bit weird, as per the illustration. Is this a known bug, and has it been fixed up in subsequent versions of Maple ?
