In Maple 10 today I exported a graph to eps, with the intention of using the LaTeX package psfrag to jazz up the text. I used textplot to place the tags into the eps file as I have done many times in the past--using Maple 9.5, 8, etc.
To my horror, in Maple10, the textplot gets placed into the eps file in some hopelessly cryptic way, and psfrag fails to find the tags, and LaTeX replacement of the tags fails.
I generated the eps file by right-clicking on the graph, and so I decided to see what happens the other way...click on the graph, select "plot" on the menu, then "export" etc.
This worked, almost. I got a simpler type of an eps file, and with this file, LaTeX was able to replace the tags I put in the eps file using textplot. Almost: when I applied the functor dvi2ps, color was lost!
At first I thought that Maple had me in checkmate. But fortunately I still have Maple 9.5 and Maple 8 installed. I copied the Maple 10 code to Maple 9.5 (even this simple task turned out to be non-trivial as I had to first paste into Winedt, then to 9.5).
Sure enough, from Maple 9.5 (remember how long it takes to start?), export to eps worked like a charm for my task--LaTeX psfrag replaced the text tags, and the result was not diminished to black and white.
In Maple 11, are the eps files so fancy that psfrag will not work?
