How can I do this in SW6?

How can I do this in SW6? Can't find the shell directory. Springer wants me to use their shell for my book. None of the old latex files seem to apply in SW6 for mac. It is very frustrating.

Thanks,
Bob

Apologies that I only just

Apologies that I only just picked up your post. I usually only look at the SWP, SW, and SNB Version 6 forum.

As nobody from MacKichan appears to have responded to you, I'll try to give you what help I can. On a Mac, the SW6 shells are located by clicking on Applications in the left-hand panel of Finder, then select the MacKichan folder. Below that, right-click (two fingers on a Mac) on the SWP.app folder and select "Show Package Contents" from the pop-up menu. Then click on Contents, then Resources and then Shells. The shell documents are there. They have a standard .sci extension just like other SW6 documents. My understanding is that, if you open any .sci file from a Shells folder, SW6 treats it as a shell even though it doesn't have a .shl extension.

That location does not, however, contain all the SW5.5 shells. However, the following might work for you. Copy the SW5.5 shell you want to your Mac (say to the SWPDocs folder) and change its extension from .shl to .tex. Then in SW6, use the Import TeX option to import that file into SW6 and save it as a .sci file. You should then be able to use it as a shell file to write your book. If you move it to any folder (perhaps best to create a new one) under the Shells location mentioned above, it should appear on the list when you choose File > New Document in SW6.

A word of warning though. SW6 still has a lot of bugs, so committing to write a whole book in it may not be wise at this stage and you might get on better using SW5.5. SW5.5 seems to work well on a Mac if you use the Parallels program that creates a Windows environment on a Mac.
