since I started to use Maxima several years ago I noticed that draw3d images are never placed in the center of the
output window. They are always significantly displaced into the upper right corner, independently of the size of the
window. This displacement is so strong that less than half of the output window is actually usable for the output. The
rest is wasted. If you have complicated 3d-functions, this is a pity. The 3d image can be turned and view from different
perspectives, but the pivot point remains dislocated to the upper right corner. I know of no way to set it into the
center of the window.
This displacement I consider a strong handicap of this function which is otherwise a great thing. Is this only a Windows
issue? And is there nothing Maxima can do about this? We should try to find a solution for that. If we can't, maybe we
should address the problem to gnuplot. But I cannot imagine that there should be no way to fix this.
