Set Preferences for Notebooks

Preferences Available for Notebooks

To change preferences for displaying the contents of notebooks:

  1. Select View > Configure

  2. In the left pane of the Configure MuPAD® dialog box, click Notebook.

The right pane of the dialog box lets you change two types of settings: the settings that affect the new notebooks only and the global settings that affect all notebooks, including existing ones. For new notebooks, you can do the following:

  • Change the default formatting settings of all new notebooks. For details, see Changing Default Formatting for Notebook Elements.

  • Change the default mode for displaying results. For details on output modes, see Using Different Output Modes.

  • Change the default line length for displaying results in plain text format.

  • Change key sequence for evaluation of input regions to Shift+Enter. The default key is Enter.

  • Specify how often MuPAD automatically saves a backup document.

For all notebooks including existing ones, you can do the following:

  • On Windows® platforms, copy graphics using scalable Windows Metafile (WMF) format. For details, see Scalable Format for Copying Graphics.

  • Highlight matched and mismatched delimiters (parentheses, brackets, and braces) in input regions. When you type a parenthesis, a bracket, or a brace, MuPAD highlights the matched delimiter in the pair. If a delimiter is missing or if a pair includes delimiters of different types (for example, a bracket and a brace), MuPAD uses a different color to highlight the delimiters. In addition to highlighting mismatched delimiters, MuPAD underlines them. To make the display of highlighting and underlining disappear, move the cursor away from a delimiter.

Change Default Formatting

To specify default formatting for the elements of all new MuPAD notebooks:

  1. Select View>Configure.

  2. In the left pane of the Configure MuPAD dialog box, click Notebook.

  3. In the right pane of the dialog box, click Default Formats.

  4. In the Default Formats dialog box, use tabs to select the required element. You can specify default formatting for text regions, calculations, tables, frames, and links.

  5. Specify default formatting for the element you selected. For example, set the default font size, style, and color for the text regions.

Scalable Format for Copying Graphics

By default, MuPAD copies graphics to the clipboard using bitmap formats. On Windows platforms, you can choose to copy graphics using scalable Windows Metafile (WMF) format. To enable scalable WMF format for copying graphics, use the following steps:

  1. Select View>Configure.

  2. In the left pane of the Configure MuPAD dialog box, click Notebook.

  3. In the right pane of the dialog box, select Embed scalable graphics for plots in clipboard RTF.
