I am trying Manipulate function in Mathematica 10.2. The problem is that when I move the slider the graph manipulates but when I click the + sign/expand button to see the value it automatically resets my slider to start position.

I have tried Mathematica 10 where this problem never occured.

Also I want to keep sliders in expanded form even after I reinitialize my Manipulate function if possible.

I know that I can expand the slider and then move it but the problem is I have to reinitialize my Manipulate function many times for various reasons and thus sliders reset all the time.

Kindly help me out if possible.

PS: I have tried the Bookmark setting its a little tedious.

  • $\begingroup$ You might add a minimal example to you question, to illustrate your problem. As far as I know and my tests show, the values do no longer (Mathematica 10.2, Windows 10) reset after clicking the Show Animation Controls button. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It was noticed ealier: mathematica.stackexchange.com/q/82932/5478 it was marked as solved but I have no idea why... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Kuba I remember this behavior well, and I had reported on reproducing it in the original question. I have since upgraded to 10.2 and indeed this behavior seems to have been fixed. I have not observed self-resetting sliders as described since the upgrade. I also cannot reproduce the problem in that question you linked any more, although I could with 10.1. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @MichaelE2 "Version" -> "7.0.0" :) and Manipulator[1] resets to 0 when opened. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Kuba Your example only resets when the initial value is greater than or equal to the upper end point (e.g., Manipulator[0.9] works fine). It seems opening Manipulator[x., {a, b}], replaces the value x by Mod[x, b-a, a]. In one way it makes sense, since you're opening (and activating) the animator component. $\endgroup$
