I recommend making an entirely new posting for a new question.

I was just about to ask whether the grey table was intentional. I'm glad that's solved.

Can you upload the worksheet on which this occurs?

You can probably make something similar work with a plot component. You will need some kind of button to cause a new path into the plot component; all you have to do is make the button rewrite the makeanim command into the plot component.

While this clearly works, I would strongly NOT recommend using the uppercase PLOT structures if you can possibly avoid it. These structures are essentially the internal language of the plot system: by writing them you are bypassing a whole lot of error checking, and you may also be getting worse performance because you are bypassing an optimization step.

This is the sort of thing Maplesoft Technical Support is good at. I suggest giving them a call. They'll want to know what operating system you are running under.

That's right, it doesn't.

If you are wanting your plot to appear in the worksheet then the easiest way is to use a plot component. Insert one into the appropriate place in the worksheet (using a palette or the insert menu) and then set the value of it to be the command you want to execute. You can also set the width and the height in pixels, either from the Properties dialog or programmatically.

The calculations are not exact when it comes to overlap.

What I believe Laurent said is that MaplePrimes is a Community board; while it is sometimes watched by developers, that is not always true. Just because something has been posted on MaplePrimes doesn't mean that someone from Maple has seen it. For example a bug may be described in the middle of a thread that is about something unrelated. That's why you should always use the normal bug-reporting channels in order to be sure that Maple has noticed the issue.

Hi Alec

The font issue does appear to be a genuine bug. Can I suggest you report it in the usual way, please.

The reason for the non-appearance of 0.7 is that Maple tries to avoid drawing tickmark labels that overlap. If it finds labels that overlap it removes those that do, maximising the number that it can draw. In this case it is trying to draw tickmarks at intervals of 0.1 but has to remove all but the ones you see. Maple always draws the first and last tick label; 0.7 would overlap with 1.0 and so can't be drawn. Making the plot bigger, or using a smaller font, would allow it to draw all of them without overlap.
