These are questions asked by Will_iii

I should know this by now but its been a long day learning Maple Flow 2022 and my eyes are rolling back in my head and I'm not thinking clearly ... so maybe some kind soul will gentley remind me how to  specify a the units for a number are Radians ...

When I look at the Units Palette in Maple Flow I don't see a unit symbol for radians ... or did I miss it?

Altenately ...

An example for specifying feet ...
type the number
press Ctl+Shift+U
type ft

An example for specifying radians...
enter the number
press Ctl+Shift+U
type what?

I know Maple Flow 2022 uses Radians by default ... but  when I just type a number without specifying units it could be anything.

Thanks for any help.

Question 1: The Common Symbols palette referenced in the the section titled ... "Solution 2 - Use the Palettes" in Online Help HERE ...

Where is the Common Symbols palette in Maple Flow 2022 ... or is it missing?

Question 2: How can I add it if it  is missing as it looks very handy.

Question 3: Can you create custom Palettes and if so how?

Question 4: OT: Any chance of getting a spell checke for Forum Post ? :-)

Thanks for any help.

I know they must be in Maple Flow somewhere but after 45 minutes of looking ... I'm asking ...

Where are the common scientific constants in Maple Flow?

For instance "e" for Euler's number ~2.71828, or "c" the speed of light  in a vacuum ...

Or must I define them myself?

Thanks for any help.

PS - I'm wondering if prior knowlede of the original "Maple Math" program is expected of Maple Flow users?

I'm new to MapleSoft having just acquired MapleFlow 2022 and am making my way through the first few tutorials.
After a few hours I have started to accumulate some questions ...

First ... is the proper forum for Maple Flow 2022? I didn't see "Maple Flow" in the "Tags" so just checking.

Now my questions ...


I - Page Margins: Are their no Page Margins or Rulers?
When looking at print preview my content shows up split vertically with half on page-1 and half on page-2.
How do I easily keep up with what is on Page 1 and what is on Page 2, etc?

II - Draw Tool: Is it true that the  "Draw Tool" only appears when hovering over an imported image? That has been my experience.
In fact I wouldn't have known there was a draw tool except by accident ... after I had imported an image ... then wondered why the image tool appeared then disappeared ... discovering later it appeared when hovering the mouse over an image.
It would be very handy to be able to draw on the canvas without restricting it to drawing on an imported image ...
Is there a way to draw on the canvas without having to import an image ...
If not I guess one could import a blank image and then draw on that ... or what?

iii - Apps to Create Images: What applications do you use for creating images? I've experimented with PC Paint and Inkscape but wondered what image creation software you guys may use.

IV - SVG Files: Are there plans to be able to create or import and manipulate SVG files? (Like fromInkscape? That would be very handy.)

V - Adding Units:
I saw in the video "Introducing Maple Flow: A Freeform Whiteboard for Design Calculations" at minute 15:53 ...
That you can add Units by holding down CTL+Shift and then pressing U as in the example below ...
    Click on the Canvas
    Type 2
    Hold down Ctl+Shift then press U
    Overwrite the unit placeholder with "m"
    Type +
    Type 3
    Hold down Ctl+Shift then press U
    Overwrite the unit placeholder with "ft"
    Press =
    Press Enter, Tab, or the Arrow key
After numerous attempts, I was unable to get this to work ... is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
(I was able to get units to work using other techniques noted in the examples that came with the program but the above method
would be useful ... if I could get the darn thing to work :-)


I'm excited about learning and using MapleFlow ... so thanks to any kind soul who has the patience to answer some questions for me along the way :-)
