I'm using Win10, maple 2016.

I'm using high contrast mode (dark mode, white on black). Maple looks broken, the text is black on black, and in the side panel, some of the buttons are shiney white.

How do I set maple to support high contrast?

How come maple doesn't support symbolic matrix calculus?

For example, I'd like to differentiate or simplify expressions with relation to general vectors and matrices. Besides simpifying the expressions, in runtime (e.g. optimizing a function in matlab) my vector and matrix size change according to the data, so deriving specific expressions element-wise would only be valid for a specific case.

A simple example (A is a matrix, x is a vector):

f(x) = ||Ax||^2

df/dx = 2A'Ax

Recently, I stumbled into this

http://www.matrixcalculus.org/

where you can try my example above: norm2(A*x)^2

I was wondering how come that mature symbolic softwares on the market (maple and mathematica) can't do it?
