Question: Problems with Maple 2016 worksheet text

Given that I use Maple as a student I've had to update to the newest version to keep using Maple.

However I find I have a lot of problems with the new version.

 

Normally when I write an assignement or work on the given problems I use worksheet mode because it is the best mode to spot any mistakes, and I've grown accostumed to it.

 

My problem however is when I have to use text.

 

Normally I've hit CTRL+T to get Maple to recognize that I write text, whereupon I write the given assignment, and press CTRL+J for when I want to go on and write some math. However we do have a little issue about the symbols.

 

Since I am an engineering student we use a lot of greek letters, and in this case I bring up sigma. In the "old" Maple I pressed F5 to get into math, write the symbol I wanted, pressed F5 again to get back to text and keep writing. In Maple 2016 however I do the same and then at the end of the text paragraph maple spits out lines of blue text with all of the "math" that I have written.


So my question is thus: Can I stop Maple from giving me the blue text, or perhaps is there another way to type symbols without having to go into math?
