@Thomas Richard 

I'm using firefox and it appeared to work ok.  Then I unchecked it and scrolled to the top and now I'm stuck, it won't scroll down past two rows of applications. 

Something is not working right.  I've disabled uBlock origin for maplesoft and still doesn't help.  Now it worked initially but I did something to break it and now I can't scroll to any other applications. 

@dharr Oh right.  Thanks that's what I was looking for - I was looking in the wrong spot.  I was starting to use an alternate way by changing the color of the font under Format -> Styles...-> C 2D Math to white.

 

@dharr Oh ok this works for plotting but it doesn't work for equations.

I must be doing something wrong. In windows Document mode for Maple 2022

I create an input then output with "crtl + =" select show hide markers - There's no option to hide show hide input output display under document blocks. 

Went to edit - Document blocks.  The only option is to toggle input/output display and that completely hides everything in the document block.

The hide show input option seems klunky.  I should be able to right click on output or input and have the option to hide it. 

Oh, I found out it's just "prop" must have been a one time fluke by typing in the whole word. 

@mcouture I turned off the ad blocker and that did not change anything.  It is the Firefox browser, I confirmed on another computer that Microsoft Edge, appears at a prliminary glance, to work ok. 

I wonder what settings in Firefox need to be changed in order to browse the Maplesoft application center properly with the Firefox browser?  There must be some setting that changes the way it browses the Maplesoft application center as compared to Microsoft Edge. 

Actually it can be done using a workaround.  Just paste a picture of the strikethrough using the snip tool in windows - copy a portion of a picture and paste it back into maple.

So just a simple example would be like this (extremely obvious but the point is shown)

crude, but it works.

So it's been 10 years and it doesn't appear Maple has the ability to strikethrough a character.  2022 doesn't and I don't believe 2023 has that capability either.

I was generating a solution to a physics problem for some students, and although not entirely necessary, it would have been helpful to visualize what variables were being cancelled out.

I tried using Word 2007 with it's strikethrough option and tried copying and pasting it over into math or text but I just get the characters with no strike.  

This strikethrough option doesn't appear to be one of a concern to many or anyone else since there has been no upvotes and no replies on the topic. But this is mainly for document creation - it's so much easier to create a math document in Maple than it is in Word but I suppose people just resort to other methods or do without is my guess.

I've discovered Microsoft Edge works better than Firefox.  But the searches don't bring up all the applications by a given author.

Hopefully just a browser firefox issue.
Pick Samir Khan for example, he has a number of excellent applications.  I can scroll forever down but all I see is 18 of his applications and I go to select one and it throws me back to the top, quite frustrating to say the least.

@C_R "Probably because the readers of your original post immediately jumped on rendering planets."

No, but rendering world maps to a sphere is a logical and obvious choice of reasoning.  

Probably uncurl the picture or transform to a flat surface might make more sense.

A rough 2 dimensional mathematical formula of a vase

f(x) = (-16/45) x3 + (14/9)x2 - (8/5)x + 1

Measuring would get the formula to right proportions of the vase in the picture  - roughly - I'm not looking for exactness. 

@acer So imagining the picture in 3 dimensional space and mapping it to a flat 2d space. 

I was just starting to get used to unapply.  The problem with that now is that future applications by people who prefer to use, or start using, MakeFunction will fail in older versions of Maple. 

In the first example on the help page I can see the logic of the new function.

This is the way I interpret it anyways - f equals make a function out of p in terms of x.  But it can be confusing because literally it says MakeFunction(p,x) - ok so what happened to p, I would kind of expect the variable p to be in the output. 

Anyways, it's a play on words.

@Carl Love Thanks Carl.  Indeed I thought order was playing a factor, and of course always a consideration.

Of course, the simulations are the more nteresting parts.
