@Traruh Synred The help states Multi-line comments are not available in 2-D math

It seemed to have worked in my 2d math, which is the default setting in document mode.  You perhaps are using the wrong brackets or missing a bracket during your construction of the comment section.


@segfault I have submitted a software change request. 

Maplesoft can't keep everyone happy all the time, but I think every little bit counts.  This change request should be a relatively easy one to incorporate.  In fact there may be some java trickery that could be done in an ini file or something that someone may be able to macguyver. 

@segfault I don't think they're resisting the change.  I think they just haven't allocated resources to make that change and instead have focused more on improving Maple performance.  Yes it would be a nice feature but aesthetics is probably low on their priority list. 

I'm not very familiar with Linux so I thought the Jupyter theme package would work for you.  In Linux there must be a setting to change the desktop colors.

In windows under the advanced personal settings the canvas can be changed but it occurs for all applications.  I show you below what Maple looks like when I make that change under windows 7, and also see that the notepad application canvas has also changed. 


For Linux (which it appears you are using) you can download the Jupyter - themes package and that will control the background color.

Same with Windows, will have to adjust the themes colors in the operating system.

But other than using the tables work around to change the color there doesn't appear to be another way. 

@sursumCorda Do you mind if you repost or reshare your alternate way?  I think it had to do with a vector approach. 

There was a posted comment by "sursumCorda" that was deleted.  Who and why was it deleted???  Mapleprimes please re-instate the deleted answer.

@C_R it's faster since you have more cores and logical processors. 

@Preben Alsholm oh thanks for that.

So for older versions of Maple using that method we'd need the map and would have to do



@Joe Riel Great!  Yeah, the delay is a bit long.

Also the advanced search will not list replies.  As I noticed, and just found out, the drop down box for type only includes posts and questions but not replies, so it won't be an "all time" list unfortunately.  But luckily that can be found under the tab. 

The only other thing missing is replies of type "comments" there is no tab, and no dropdown type for that.  So if you're looking for a comment reply from a post, unless you know some keywords that normal search will pickup it won't be easy trying to find it. 

****edit update**** Actually, doing more checking and the comment replies entries will be brought up under the replies tab.  My only disappointment still being under the advanced search type - replies option isn't available *************

@sursumCorda I've found the file and am uploading it again here.

@Joe Riel 

You have to start into your last name, your name came up after 10 seconds

Ok I did find my name

The key is to pick the author name in the drop down list.  If your name doesn't come up, you actually have to wait until the list repopulates - and you will see that when the cursor in the box stops blinking.  I had to wait 5 seconds after typing in my name before the cursor stopped flashing, then I had to wait another 10 seconds before the list repopulated and I could see my name to select. 

Also either include a date range or put a space in the keyword for an alltime list.  It's not necessary for the space in the keyword if a date range is specified.  But the main key is to have to select an author from the drop down list.

Just noticed a replies and answers tab under the profile.  This is good. 

@Joe Riel Hmm, I'm discovering some tricks that sort of make it work better.

In the author select box, it seems one has to pick an author that pops up in the list.  Just typing a name doesn't work.  But also to make it work - in the keyword box it can't be left blank, so a space bar has to be entered then it works.  My name Christopher2222 does not come up as an option and so far I've been unable to fine it. 

I did find your name "Joe Riel" so picking it and entering a space in the keyword box seems to pick them up. 

Thanks to both. 

I noticed in LinearAlgebra, there is a Map function which can have an optional [filter] which on the help page selects the positions for it to be applied.  Can that be used in this case?
