Thank you very muc, acer. Why does it work with trunc(i) in L[trunc(i)] and not just i? Isn't i supposed to be an integer here?

Thank you, Kitonum. Acer has told me above why the code was not working and gave me a working alternative.

Thank you, again.

This is it!!! Thanks a million, acer.

Here is exactly what I am using:

F := proc(t)
plottools[line]([-2,0], [cos(t)-2, sin(t)], color=blue,thickness=3),
plottools[line]([cos(t)-2, sin(t)], [t, sin(t)], color=blue,thickness=3),
plot(sin(x), x=0..t, view=[-3..7, -5..5],thickness=3):
end proc:

plots:-animate(F,[theta],theta=0..2*Pi,background=plot([cos(t)-2,sin(t),t=0..2*Pi],thickness=3),
scaling=constrained,axes=none);

Error, (in plots/animate) plotcommand did not return a PLOT or PLOT3D object

acer, tomleslie sent me the same exact code below. It doesn't work either in Maple 2013 or Maple 2020.
Thank you!

## @tomleslie  Sorry, tomleslie, I go...

Sorry, tomleslie, I got the same response from Maple when I used your file:

Error, (in plots/animate) plotcommand did not return a PLOT or PLOT3D object

Thank you, acer. When I use plot:-animate
I get

Error, (in plots/animate) plotcommand did not return a PLOT or PLOT3D object

When I erase the commas and replace them by colons or semicolons,
I do not get the two straight line segments plotted.
This is happening in Maple 2020 as well.

Thank you again.

The degree symbol in my original message was not done with nprintf(`#mn("%a&deg;");`, 30)), or anything like that. It was done with the ALT-key on the keyboard plus 0176 on the keypad. Here it is 30°.
Thanks again.

This is just great, @acer. Once again, you solved the problem beautifully.

mapleatha

## @Ramakrishnan  Thank you Ramakrish...

Thank you Ramakrishnan. I know all that. I needed the font used for the degree number changed to Arial.

It works fine, @acer, thank you. Why was the Arial font changed for the number 30 though?

Thank you, but I don't want the paretnheses.

Thank you, Acer. This would fix the problem very nicely.
