There have been enhancements that make using document mode and the equation editor generally smoother. For example, it is now much easier to tell when you are in math entry mode and when you are in text mode, and context menus operations are now "self-documenting", so you get a written explanation of every step, instead of just an arrow. In addition to built-in materials like the Quick Help, Quick Reference Card, and "Take a Tour of Maple" guides, which are in the help system, since Maple 10 was released, we also created some training videos which you may not have seen. Many people have found them helpful in getting started with document mode. We are working on new videos for Maple 11, but if you'd like to see the Maple 10 versions, you'll find them at http://www.maplesoft.com/support/training/index.aspx Eithne Eithne Murray Maplesoft
Not to forget Schoolhouse Rock. For anyone who watched kids tv in the '70s (in north america anyway), you may remember such classic songs as "My Hero, Zero", or "Little Twelvetoes", a song about aliens who work naturally in base 12. Here's a link with the lyrics. Looks like the sound clips are missing, unfortunately. Multiplication Rock. eithne
Just a small note of caution. In general, it's not a good idea to actually use an undocumented function directly. If it's not documented, we may just change its behaviour substantially from relase to release, or even remove it completely, for internal use reasons, and your code will then break. Though I suppose they aren't quite "undocumented functions" if there is a help page about them. More like "mostly undocumented functions". :-)
