I noticed Maple changes 1/(4*(x-2)) to 1/(4*x-8) when copying the output and pasting it back to the worksheet.
But in the variable it does remain 1/(4*(x-2)) which is what I wanted, as I am going to look for this form later on and I do not want it expanded.
But I am curious why Maple does this. It is a little annoying when copying something from one worksheet to another and have it change. Here is a small movie and the code to see it.
Is there a way to prevent this automatic expansion? Maple 2021.2 on windows 10
