Question: how to tell Maple not to automatically expand number/denom when denom is constant term?

in a worksheet, typing

r:=(x^2 - 2*x - 1)/4;

Maple returns

But when typing

r:=(x^2 - 2*x - 1)/(4*x);

Now it does not expand terms and gives what is expected

Is there a way to make the first example remain unexpanded? Same with Mathematica:

I know this only affects the display only. But it is annoying, as I want to see the numerator and denominator on the screen as I put them there and not have them change.

I tried changing the typesetting level, but this had no effect.

I used to like Maple becuase it does not change anything unless asked to, and everything is explicit, which is better.

Now I am starting to change my mind on this aspect of Maple.
