# Last[], Dimension[] in CAS don't work properly

Hi,

In CAS the commands Last[], Dimension[], Take[] (with Length[]) don't work properly.

In Algebra (entering in the Input Bar) they work!

In the attached file

you find some examples.

- Last[<Matrix>]

returns -> ? in CAS.

See CAS#2, #4, #6 in the attachment.

- Dimension[<Matrix>]

returns -> ? in CAS if Matrix has only 1 row.

See CAS#12, #16

Using Length[] to get the last row with Take[]

- Take[M,Length[M],Length[M]]

does not work/returns an error.

See CAS#7, #19

But

- Take[M,Length[M]-1,Length[M]-1]

does return the row before last.

See CAS#22.

Calculating the length in advance

- L=Length[Matrix]

and then using it within Take[] works!

See CAS#7 - #10, #19 - #21

Typing Length in an empty CAS cell only offers

- Length[ <Function>, <Start x-Value>, <End x-Value> ]

Length[ <Function>, <Start Point>, <End Point> ]

but not:

- Length[ <Object> ]

Length[ <Curve>, <Start t-Value>, <End t-Value> ]

Length[ <Curve>, <Start Point>, <End Point> ]

although they are accepted.

This seems to be a new feature in GeoGebra 5.0.47:

- To be able to open the context menu of an object in Graphics View (right-click) you MUST select the object first and then right-click on it?!

In GeoGebra 5.0.42 (4.4.40+) you can immediately perform the right-click on an object in Graphics to get the context menu without having to select the object beforehand.

Thanks, all should be working now in 5.0.49.0
