Options Dialog - Display Tab
In the Options dialog, the Display tab allows you to change the default display settings for typesetting, plots, context panel operations, insert rules, and more. Click on the links below to browse to an option description.
For more information about the Options dialog and how to apply settings to current and future Maple sessions, see the Options Dialog help page.

Control the appearance of input expressions at a Maple prompt (
) by selecting one of two Input display types: Maple notation and 2-D math notation. Changing this option changes the type of display used for any input after the current execution group.
From the Input display drop-down list, select Maple Notation or 2-D Math Notation. The default is 2-D Math Notation.
Click Apply to Session, Apply Globally, or Cancel.
Use Maple Notation to display input as Maple syntax.
2-D Math Notation
Use 2-D Math Notation to display expressions in standard math notation.
For more on Maple Notation, see Enter Expressions in Maple Worksheets. For more on 2-D Math Notation, see Entering Commands in 2-D Math.
Maple provides four different formats in which to display Maple output.
From the Output display drop-down list, select one of Maple Notation, Character Notation, Typeset Notation, or 2-D Math Notation. The default is 2-D Math Notation.
Future commands that are executed display output using the new setting.
Note: These settings apply when Typesetting is set to Standard, not Extended.
Use Maple Notation to display the output as Maple syntax.
Use Character Notation to display the output in a 2-D text-based character format. All of the special symbols are created using ASCII characters.
Typeset Notation displays the output as it would appear in typeset textbooks. In this case, you cannot edit the output.
Use this setting to view labels in your 2-D typeset output. For more information, see interface.
Use 2-D Math Notation to display standard math.
The rule-based typesetting functionality is available only when Typesetting level is set to Extended. For details, see Typesetting and Typesetting Rule Assistant.
Set Maple output to indicate which variables have assumptions.
From the Assumed variables drop-down list, select No Annotation, Trailing Tildes, or Phrase. The default is Trailing Tildes.
When No Annotation is selected, the output of the Maple command displays variables with assumptions as regular variables.
When Trailing Tildes is selected, the output of the Maple command displays variables with assumptions by appending a tilde to them.
When Phrase is selected, the output of the Maple command displays variables with assumptions as regular variables, but lists any variables that have assumptions.
Enter the Maple command about(variablename) to display a description of the assumption for the variable variablename.
Plot anti-aliasing is a technique for making subtle adjustments in the color of the individual pixels that make up the curve of a plot in order to make the plot appear smoother. By default, this option is Enabled.
You can set font display such that characters are rendered with a smoother and rounder appearance.
From the Font anti-aliasing drop-down list, select from Default, Enabled, or Disabled.
Restart Maple. The new setting is enabled.
Display plots in the current worksheet (inline) or in a new plot window.
From the Plot display drop-down list, select Inline or Window. The default is Inline.
The point probe displays the coordinate information for points on your 2-D plots. Use this option to select the default coordinate information to display.
From the Default Point Probe Mode drop-down list, select one of the following options:
Nearest point on line
Click Apply to Session or Apply Globally.
For more information on the point probe modes, see Display 2-D Plot Coordinates.
When copying task template content to another worksheet, you have the option of indicating variables. From the Show task variables on insert drop-down list, select from Always, Only on Naming Conflict, or Never. The default is Only on Naming Conflict.
With the Task content to insert option, you can copy All Content, Standard Content, or Minimal Content into the worksheet.
All Content inserts all content present in the task template.
Standard Content inserts all content but the Commands Used and the Description heading. This is the default setting.
Minimal Content inserts only the commands or embedded components.
For more information, see Maple Tasks.
Use the Syntax check level to choose the level of detail reported when you use use Check Syntax in the Startup Code, Code Edit Region, or any other code editor in your worksheet.
From the Syntax check level drop-down list, select one of the following options:
Display only severe errors
Display severe and serious errors (default)
Display warnings as well as severe and serious errors
For more information, see CodeEditRegion.
Syntax checks can be performed automatically in the Startup Code, Code Edit Region, and any other code editor in your worksheet or when requested. To enable automatic syntax checks, select the Check syntax automatically check box. By default, this feature is enabled.
When you roll over a plot with your mouse, the plot can be highlighted. To set this feature, select the Enable rollover highlighting in plots check box.
By default, Maple uses hardware acceleration for plots if possible, and uses a software renderer if hardware acceleration is not available.
To change the setting to always use the software renderer, clear the Use hardware acceleration for plots check box.
The Always insert new execution group after executing option controls the automatic insertion of a new execution group after Maple computes an execution group. By default, this feature is not enabled.
If this feature is not enabled, Maple computes the execution group and then moves the cursor to the next execution group in the worksheet.
If the computed execution group is the last one in the worksheet, Maple creates a new execution group and moves the cursor to it.
If this feature is enabled, Maple automatically inserts a new execution group after computing any execution group.
Display equation labels in the worksheet. Each execution group generates a label that is displayed in the right-hand side of the worksheet. These labels may be referenced elsewhere in the worksheet as necessary. For instructions, see Using Equation Labels.
Note: Disabling this feature will affect the display of help pages and Maple worksheets that use equation label references.
When you apply a math operation from the Context Panel, the self-documenting context-sensitive operations automatically create a record of your actions while you solve your problem. An arrow connects input and output as the result of a context panel operation and the text describing the operation is displayed above the arrow. For more information, see Self-Documenting Context-Sensitive Operations.
The Load/Unload package feature allows you to quickly load (or unload) all commands in a package. Selecting this check box merely exposes the with and unwith commands when loading and unloading the package.
