Notation is one of the most important things to communicate with others in science. It is remarkable how many people use or do not use a computer algebra package just because of its notation. For those reasons, in the context of the Physics package, strong emphasis is put on using textbook notation as much as possible regarding input and output, including, for that purpose, as people here know, significant developments in Maple typesetting.

Still, for historical reasons, when using the Physics package, the labels used to refer to a coordinate system had been a single Capital Letter, as in X, Y, ...It was not possible to use, e.g. X', or x.

That has changed. Starting with the Maplesoft Physics Updates v.1308, any symbol can be used as a coordinate system label. The lines below demo this change.
