From the File menu, select Open. The Open dialog appears. 2. Select Text as ﬁle type. 3. Double-click the desired ﬁle. The Text Format Choice dialog opens. 4. Select Maple Text. 5. Click OK. | | | 2 x sin(x - a) dx 8.3 Exporting Worksheets • 295 Plain Text Export a Maple worksheet as plain text so that you can open the text ﬁle in another application. Translation of Maple Worksheets to Plain Text When a Maple worksheet is translated to Plain Text, the following describes what happens to various worksheet elements. • Maple Input is preceded by a greater-than sign and a space (> ). • Text is preceded by nothing. • Page break objects insert manually in Maple are not supported when export as plain text. • Hidden content is not exported. • Graphics are not exported. • Special symbols like integral signs and exponents are dislayed in character-based typesetting. Exporting As Plain Text To export a worksheet as plain text: 1. Open the worksheet to export. 2. From the File menu, select Export As. The Export As dialog opens. 3. Select Plain Text as a ﬁle type. 4. Specify a path and folder for the ﬁle. 5. Enter a ﬁlename. Maple automatically appends a .txt extension. 6. Click Export.

Translation of Maple Worksheets to Rich Text Format The following describes what happens to various worksheet elements. • Graphical, that is, non-textual items such as Plots, Standard Math, and Standard Math Input and Output, images, and Sketch output in the worksheet are converted to static images in the RTF ﬁle. Each line of math is converted to a separate image. • Hidden content is not exported. • Manual page breaks are translated to an RTF page break object. • Page numbers are translated to RTF page numbers. • Spreadsheet cells in the Maple worksheet are exported, along with the column and row headers, and converted to RTF tables. • Standard Math and Standard Math Input are baseline aligned in Microsoft r Word. • Worksheet styles are approximated by RTF styles.
