Text Formatting

eBookTools is designed to make the formatting in the output consistent and uniformly controlled by the appropriate style sheet. As a result, the following limitations apply to the formatting made in the worksheet:

 • Color: All color applied to text and table backgrounds is ignored. Color for Maple input, output, errors, and warnings is controlled by the corresponding settings.
 • Font: Only the Courier New and Monospaced fonts are preserved, and other font choices are ignored.
 • Maple Code: Maple code, both 1D and 2D, must be enclosed in an execution group.
 • Spacing: For paragraph styles, only the Left Margin indent property of the paragraph is used.
 • Whitespace: Extra whitespace is ignored in the text, but is preserved for monospaced fonts.
