Re: General::obspkg and "Compatibility Guide"???
In 6.0, try: ?Translate* or just search for Translate in the Documentation Center. Why has TranslateShape disappeared? Many, many of the standard add-ons are now incorporated directly in the kernel. Many names have changed. In each case one can only guess it is in order to make a more consistent naming scheme, to avoid name clashes, or simply to take the opportunity to make better names. beckman wrote: > Hello -- I'm trying to get my old notebooks to work in Mathematica 6.
