Well then the Maple 13 documentation is wrong, because it says I can cycle thru' open Maple windows using Alt-Shift-F6. It neither cycles thru' windows nor tabs. In short, IT DON'T WORK !

It's probably also worth mentioning that if you go to the Integration Methods tutor, and click the All Steps button, what you see is similar to what I am looking for.

 

Hi,

Something like this (knocked up in the Microsoft Equation Editor). I still want Maple to do the math, but to hide what it does at each step.

So, for example, I issue a command for Maple to multiply both sides by 7*x at the first step, but I want to hide this fact.

It occurred to me to firstly create a variable (e.g. eqn) to store the equation, then perform each step on eqn. This didn't work, as I didn't know how to manipulate the document so as to hide the input and show the output. Furthermore, I wasnt able to line up the equal signs.

Then, I thought of creating a table with 3 columns and as many rows as necessary, and with zero borders. I could put the LHS in the first column's cell, put an equal sign in the middle column's cell, and the RHS in the right column's cell. This had the effect of aligning the equal sign (if I center-justify). The problems are twofold here : (i) how to issue a command to the cells in the first and third columns simultaneously; and (ii) as before, how to hide the input.

So, I'm looking for a more elegant solution but I'm up against a brick wall.

thanks,

Andrew

Thanks, problem solved. Answer by Thomas Richard was what I was looking for.

No it does not. I typed in some text, selected a word and the hyperlink remained grayed out.

Thanks, jakubi .... Maple already does all of this though, doesn't it ?
....and what about the "thousands of Maple add-ons" etc. ? (....told you I was greedy)
