I haven't managed to round values with units, and get the trailing zeroes cut away, so I'd like to use the MapleTA:-Builtin:-numfmt function to do the job.

The problem is, that this function doesn't accept values with units.

I have managed to write a rounding function to do the rounding, but the problem here is that it will write the values with trailing zeroes, which isn't what I want.

Any ideas how to fix that?

It would be nice to have the file name in addition to the name of the code attachment on the top.

Is there a way to importing cell values as text, and not numbers, when the cell is formatted as a text?

As far as I can see, a cell with the value "1" is always import as "1.0" in ExcelTools, regardless if the cell is formatted as text or something else in Excel.

Writing '1 in the Excel cell however leads to a text import in Maple, and will give "1", not "1.0".

There is one more thing that is strange in Excel. Even if the cell is formatted as a text, or the cell content is with a ' before the number, Excel will allow a calculation with that value. Text value 4 will give 5, if added 1.

pointplot works with units, textplot apparently doesn't

"with(DocumentTools):   with(Units[Simple]):  with(plots):"


    a := 15*Unit('m')



b := 10*Unit('m')



displayPoints := pointplot([a, b])


displayText := textplot([a, b, "text"])

Error:TEXT location must be numeric; received: [`+`(`*`(15., `*`(Unit(m)))), `+`(`*`(10., `*`(Unit(m))))]




Why is the graphics quality of text so much worse in Maple than in other software?

On my screen it becomes barely readable, while Word or pdf are much better.

Same screen, same font (Arial, 11) and zoom factor (100%).
