I have been using Scientific Notebook to create documents with lots of mixed media. Examples include hyperlinks to Web Sites, audio files that bring up my audio player. avi files that show the video I have made, Vpython files that execute in place (I have lots of Vpython simulations and can execute them within Scientific Notebook).
In other words, I can import pictures and hyperlink to any file and have the proper software to execute.
This way I can temporally pass control to anything from within my Scientific Notebook.
Now that I have Maple 10 I would like to use it instead of Scientific Notebook ( create documents containing the above abilities) but without the above abilities in Maple 10 I will have to do the reverse:
hyperlink to Maple Documents and Worksheets from within Scientific Notebook.
But I need the math abilities of Maple 10 that aren't convient in Scientific Notebook.
Also, I would like to be able to copy from the contents of a Maple worksheet as an image and post to any other document ( Word, MS Paint, Scientific Notebook, etc.).
The above would make Maple a powerful document creater. Professors could create powerful presentations.
The change looks simple - hyperlink would just pass temporary control.
