We are having the following problem with Mathematica 3.0: ******************************************************************** >From: "Ulvi Yurtsever" <uyurtsever at dynatec.com> >Organization: Dynamics Technology, Inc. >Date sent: Mon, 5 May 1997 10:12:20 -0800 >Subject: Plot options broken in version 3.01 for Windows In our copy of Mathematica 3.01 for windows (under both winnt4.0 and win95), most of the standard options for the Plot[] function don't seem to work. For example, after loading the Graphics` package, attempting to generate LogLogPlots produce plots with only one axis drawn and with no tick marks shown etc. Also, the plot seems to have a different colored background (even though no color specifications are given). This color cannot be removed by Format->Background Color->None. Similar behavior occurs with the ordinary Plot[] (without any packages loaded) when non-default options are given to Ticks, Axes, and other related option fields (even the examples in Section 2.9.5 of the Mathematica book cannot be reproduced by the kernel).

As a related note: I have sent the above message to support at wolfram.com twice this week, and it has been completely ignored (apart from the automatic acknowledgements) so far. After spending $1500 on a software package with a relatively small (supported) user base, receiving no support for it (as far as I can understand the "90 day free economy service" to registered users means not much more than "you can browse our web site for free") is outrageous. This leaves a very bad taste.
