Thanks for listening to these complaints. I am pretty sure this behavior with empty holes in print and pdf will result in an outcry from users on not just the academic school where I am employeed, but many other places too. I had say it need to be resolved rather fast in a service update. Else, people like myself, who have recommended the use of Maple on our school, will have a hard time defending this behavior. Some people might even ask for another system. It is crucial that prints and pdf look reasonable well!
I know it is probably impossible to make things look exactly like they do on screen - since people use different screen formats, etc. It is however very important to address the following:
1. Removing the empty holes on print/pdf.
2. Scaling images and plots by dragging in the worksheet should result in a scaling in print/pdf.
Regarding 2: As it is now, dragging an image in the worksheet does not affect the print at all! I have produced several instruction documents in Maple about Maple and converted them to pdf for my students. They contain screenshot images. If I take a print in Maple 16, some images are so small that it is impossible to read. That is OK, if I just have the choice to drag those images in the worksheet and have them bigger when printed. But it simply doesn't work!! So as it is now, I can basicly fold my Maple instructions and put them in the garbage can!
If you can't solve those two issues, I had prefer if you go back to how it was in Maple 15! I hope though that Maplesoft can find out how to keep the more resonable looking images and plots as introduced in Maple 16 and at the same time have those two issues solved.
I really hope this problem is resolved when I start up school again in mid-august. Thanks for listening to the users.
