Maple

Hi,

I am making good progress in getting Maple to do the simple tasks I need it to do, but there are a few things that I am unable to get looking the way I want. I have looked repeatedly for answers, but I have come up empty every time.

1. No Leading Zero: If I have a variable equal to 0.75, I want it to display as 0.75 not .75. This is not a problem when I do calculations, but when I, for example, display the value in a plot legend, I would like it to have a leading zero.

2. Scientific Notation Threshold: Is there a threshold defining when the display of a value changes from a regular decimal number to a number in scientific notation? For example, I have a number with a value of 0.0094, and I would like it to display (again, in a plot legend) as 0.0094, but it keeps coming out as .94e-2. Yes, it is the same value.

3. Scientific Notation Format: The number in #2 shows up as .94e-2, but it seems like it should be 9.4e-3. Am I missing something? It seems like I was always taught that the mantissa should be between 1 and 10, but Maple seems to want to give me a number between 0 and 1.

Thanks,

John
