Converting to 2-D Math and 2-D Math Input


The Format>Convert To>2-D Math menu selection is useful for converting 1-D Math content to standard math notation.


The Format>Convert To>2-D Math Input menu selection is useful for converting 1-D Math content or Maple Input to executable standard math notation.

Inert Form


The Format>Convert To>Inert Form menu selection is useful for converting sum, product, differentiation and partial differentiation, integrals, limits, and the evaluation symbol (vertical bar) entered using palettes to standard yet non-executable notation. You can use this feature in Document mode, or at a Maple prompt in Worksheet mode.
