Pls how can I label my vertical axis in such a way that the label will be written vertically e.g "proportions of Susceptible"


If somebody could help me it would be awesome!

I would like to be able to switch the independent variable onto the vertical axis!

If that is not possible, what i'm trying to do is modelise in a function a set of points, but with multiple values for the same x, but not more than one for the y, so the best option would be to switch the variables, to have x dependant of y. My graphic has to be vertical though, so I can't just switch the points.

Thank you a lot



I'm currently using Maple 17 and I'm trying to programatically export .eps 3D plots using the following code:

plotsetup(eps, plotoutput = `square_of_x`, plotoptions = `color=rgb , portrait, noborder, height=4in,width=4in, shrinkby=0.1`)

The problem that I'm facing is:

1- The z-axis label is outside of my figure (see uploaded figure). This happens even if I try to save the figure in .png and it seems that the 'shrinkby' option its not working properly;

Could you help me solving this?




I would like to know how one would add a superscript in maple? For example, I need to label an axis with unit cm^-1 but it shows 1/cm (like a fraction) when executed. How could I avoid this so the graph label would output cm^-1? Thank you for your help in advance!

I have used solve to find the solution to an equation that has two solutions, and I want to give each solution a label so that I can use each individually in subsequent manipulations. How do I label each solution separately?



i want a plot with labels = ["x values", "y values"] but without displaying y-axis


thanks in advance!


I have use a sparsematrixplot to identify the patterns in a matrix.

In order to facilitate the readability of my sparsematrixplot, i would like to change the labels of the rows/ columns axis.

Instead of the numeric graduation, i would like to add :

- for my rows, the labels : [eq1,eq2, ..., ]
- for my columns, the labels : [q1,q2,q3,...,]

Do you have ideas how I can do that ?

Thank you for your help


Hi guys,

I can not convert a series with label.


If anyone can confirm this?


When I right click on a plot and add a label name for the vertical axis, it is shown in horizontal way next to it, what should I do if I want to have it in a vertical display along the axis written upward?

hi friends

i have a question and i could find the answer in existing questions but it was not clear at all!!!

i want to label my contours and i know that i should use lebelledcontourplot command.

But how?!
i could find an answer:

"1- First download the files located on his webpage.    It should be zipped with 3 files in it. 

2 - Unzip them and copy them into a directory which you name, probably somewhere in the maple directory named advisor.  c:\maple12\advisor

3 - Then create a maple.ini in the maple12 directory with the following line to match your directory location  
libname:= `c:/maple12/advisor`, libname:  just like on the instruction installation page."

these are my questions:

1-how can i create a maple.ini?!
2-what should i do with the file i will create?

please explain more about the third phrase and explain exactly what should i do step by step.

thanks a lot

Hello. Using a symbol ":", you can hide the derivation of the expression. However, it lost the label of expression. Can I hide the expression of retaining the label for further use? It would be handy when working with large expressions.

How would you insert a label-coordinate in this command:




How I can get a list of all label refernces of a worksheet. In fact I want to write a small code which would produce the LaTex output (written to a text file) for my indicated labels. thanx

I am trying to alter the Virtual Solar system Maple worksheet of Yi Xie in the way that I added several objects to the eight planets and Pluto (e.g. Hale-Bopp, Sedna, 2012 VP113 etc.) and would like to adjust the array such that when zooming out and the obrit and labels overlap so that it's unreadable anymore (orbits and labels) that I can switch on and off (respectively display/not display) specific parts, e.g. the inner solar system. In the original file a single array was created from 1..18 (including 9 orbital entries and 9 label entries). What I did is to create arrays for each part of the Solar system, e.g. Inner for the planets+Pluto 1..18, an array for Hale-Bopp with an orbital entry and a label entry, so [1,2], and an array with 6 entries for 3 additional objects like Sedna, Planet X and 2012 VP113. As well as the sun, which only has a single entry as there are no orbital elements necessary and one just makes a 3dplot (I did not label it, so just one entry). All arrays are converted into lists in the end and displayed. Here is the code:

The first error message appears after the if-condition. Can you tell me where I am making a mistake? Beware: when copy paste the code from Maple to Word and from Word in here the colons at the end of lines have changed into semi-colons. Hope this is no problem in executing the code despite the lines being in the same ">..." e.g. where the labels are defined.

When you label a function of curve, this label is put just next to it. Is there a way to move this label to another position of the same curve?
