Looks like Mathcad Prime done correctly to me.

@Joe Riel 

Actually I am trying to update an exisiting Package, so probably it is the problem you are describing.


I didn't do that properly obviously. Needed to be converte to list, and then lexorder afterward.

Thanks a lot.


Are there any functions which can be used to sort words by character then?

I've tried to use the sort function, but that gives the same result.


Still working on it, this problem is not easily reproduceable.

I'll come back when I have narrowed down the issue.


I've just received an e-mail from support about that they have escalated this issue.

Should we continue directly by e-mail to support?

@Samir Khan 

I've filed a technical support request on the Maplesoft support page. In addition you've also added Maple 2021 to the list in the software change request scheme.


I've downloaded the Tex Live application for Windows, and printed one of the documents I have just to see what was happening.

The export to pdf and print to pdf gave the same results, so I assume they have the same core behind. I'm also attaching a screenshot of how the document looks on the screen.




According to the release information, the Latex converter doesn't work with components.

So even if for some workbooks the converter might give sufficient results, it won't do the job for workbooks with components.

I fully support your request, and have recently filed a similar thing to Maplesoft.

Every software that does have a closed non-open format needs to be able to export their output to a format that can be readable in the future. Calculations need to be readable by third party companies for review and check for example.


I've reinstalled 2020 again, and working on the same workbook in Maple 2020 doesn't cause any troubles.

This seems to be a new bug introduced into Maple 2021.

I found out that I can save the workbook exactly one time. The second time I try to save I get this error message.

However something needs to be done inbetween, just clicking twice on the save button doesn't trigger the problem.

Need to try to find out a bit more.

I've had a quick look at the homepage of one the company which software we used previously, before switching to Maple.

Mathcad is now on version Prime 7.0, and what's new is more or less combo-boxes for input (back again from version 15 many years ago), API guide, save as PDF (?), the possibility to convert from old legacy versions without installation of the old version, and some zoom and scroll functions.

Update from Maple 2020 to 2021 would take me at least halv a day to go through all the changes, and I wouldn't understand half of it either.

So I do not regret that we made the switch 2 years ago.


Here's a little extension to your code.

When doing the same thing in a Maple Code attachment, the characters used is 216.

This one is connected to

Which also leads to the problem that you can't compare strings from the Maple Code attachment, and components or variables from the main code.

Same thing as discussed in this thread?
