Hi

No problem with the old thread. However I'm afraid the feature you are looking for isn't available. We chose a fixed distance between plot and legend that looks good under most circumstances.

You have correctly deduced that exporting from the GUI currently exports only the single plot selected. Our exporter is not currently capable of supporting multiple plots.

By using plotsetup you are actually passing your plots to an old version of the plot exporter. It also can't export multiple plots, but instead passes the arrayplot to another (old) piece of code which tries to combine the arrayplot into a single plot. This combiner generally works, but because it is old code it cannot cope with any features of the plots added in recent releases (such a math characters). It also has problems of its own with legends and axes, which is why we don't recommend using it any more.

I'm afraid for now the best way to export high quality plots is to export them individually. We will consider adding the ability to export an arrayplot in the future, but I can't be definite about if or when that might occur.

I wasn't recommending axiswidth and axisheight, which don't affect postscript export anyway. I was recommending increasing the size of the plot in the worksheet and then exporting to PS using the GUI context menu. However a little experimentation shows that this has its own problems. You may be as well off using Classic in these cases as anything.

There is no 'document source' of a Maple document in the sense that there is of an HTML page. The GUI draws and formats a Maple worksheet based on things it knows about the worksheet that are not visible to the user.

What woodwise did above is to copy the code generated by expanding the document block. You can do the same by selecting a part of a document (not a worksheet) and choosing "Expand document block" from the View menu. This exposes some underlying magic that Maple does where it uses two command executions to represent a single one. The 'print' statement exposed by this does not send output to a printer, but to the document. Expanding this is not generally helpful, and modifying code viewed like this probably break something.

What I would suggest is dividing the plot into two parts, and then colouring each part separately - for example one command for the vertical portion of your stair, and one for the horizontal, if that is what you are wanting to do. It's difficult to know what else to suggest without more details.

The view option makes no difference in this case.

You can use "undo" to reverse any changes you made with the axis properties dialog.

The right mouse method technically works, but using the right mouse repositions the insert point to the place where the click happens. That usually is fine, but if your annotation has no contents (and thus zero width) using the right mouse moves the insert point outside the annotation. So yes, CTRL-v is the way to go.

I recommend making an entirely new posting for a new question.
