Oh, that's nice. Most likely I saw it at the time, but I had forgotten it was there.  I was treating this problem as a puzzle I wanted to solve myself, for fun, so I didn't look for other solutions first.  Glad to see I was right about the graph theory!

It's a few years old, but I think you might find this useful as a starting point. It's a tips and techniques article on creating Maple documents.

As for document blocks, I find that they are good to have because the make document mode work nicely - all those context menu operatoins remain hidden, but we've found that there are very few times when they need to be manipulated manually. The only case I can think of is if I want a result appearing in the middle of sentence. For general readabiltiy, collapsed sections, code edit regions, buttons, and startup code do a good job keeping stuff hidden but accessible.

No, there were no changes in that area for this release, so the behaviour is the same for now.

We have now released an update that fixes this problem. See http://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/202314-Mac-OS-X-1011-Now-Supported for details.

We have now released updates to Maple 2015 and MapleSim 2015 that fix these problems. See http://www.mapleprimes.com/posts/202314-Mac-OS-X-1011-Now-Supported for details.

Yes, we are working on a solution now. It should be ready in a few weeks.

This functionality (displaying the steps in the worksheet after the tutor is closed) was added in Maple 17. In older versions of Maple, you can use the ShowSolution command instead.

 

If you’re interested in comparisons, you could visit the How Does Maple Compare page on the Maplesoft web site. Among other things, you’ll find a technical paper giving a detailed comparison of Maple and Mathematica.  Obviously, I’m not claiming that this is a 3rd party, independently produced comparison, but I think you would find it useful in identifying some of the differences between the two products.

I was just reminded of yuletide.mw 

(Thanks to Doug Harder, I believe, for the Maple port of this "classic" C code.)

Since The Mobius Project content resides in the MapleCloud, the MapleCloud Terms of Use apply. You can find those terms here: http://www.maplesoft.com/cloud/terms.aspx

We'll look into ways to make this more obvious. Thanks for pointing it out.

Sorry about that. The link has been updated.

You were wondering about buying old manuals. The Maple 16 manuals are available on our web store today, for anyone who wants to pick up a set.  Once Maple 17 comes out, we’ll look at how many copies of the Maple 16 manuals we have left, if any, and decide then what to do with them.  Selling them at a discount may be an option, though it's too early to promise anything.

In case you are interested, you can by a new copy of First Leaves on Amazon for under $4!

Sorry I missed this.

In general, it is not currently possible to view Maple T.A. questions outside of Maple T.A.  However, some of the content on the T.A. Content Center does include a PDF preview which show sample questions.  For example, this course, http://www.maplesoft.com/tacontent/view.aspx?SID=140635, has a preview document that includes sample quizzes, where you can see some of the questions.

The example you found is actually something different. It's a "Tips and Techniques" document, and not a preview of a question bank or course module containing Maple. T.A. questions.

The shipped version of Maple 16 does include hardcover manuals. They can also be purchased separately for those who have access to Maple already but want the manuals.  (The manuals are also available electronically - both inside the help system and as PDFs which can be downloaded from our Documentatation Center.)

The Personal Edition is availble for qualified individuals. Here are the details.
