Text tag

 Hi everybody, i would like to know wether one can apply double  text tags to the same piece of text, i have done it, that is, to have a piece of text in typewriter mode and in large mode, i don´t remember how i did it, so then i think it is possible to apply at least to text tags to the same piece of text. If someone knows how to do it, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Chopping off the end of my file--no error message

Scientific Word is chopping off the end of one of my files. I know this because I opened up the .tex document in another program and all of my text is still there. But in Scientific Word, everything after a certain point has been chopped off.

this is a dissertation, so it's lengthy. I'm using the default Article class, and I have lots of figures. Is there some sort of maximum file size beyond which Scientific Word truncates?

table of contents for each chapter


I'm writing my thesis.

I have already a table of contents for the whole document but how can I make a table of contents for each chapter.

I have searched and I found the instruction \minitoc (a latex instruction) but it didn't work.

I'm waiting for your help.

collaboration with latex2e

Dear SWP and LaTeX experts---

some of the more tex-nically experienced folks on our team are using latex itself (on OSX and linux machines), others are using SWP (on Windows machines).

now, we would like to typeset a latex version of our collaborative document with some style files and features that are not available in SWP.  Trying to talk to the non-texnical folks about installing style files (doublespace, mathastext) and other fonts (ptmx) is hopeless.

Blackboardbold one

 I'd like to use a 1 with blackboard bold to define an indicator function.  I am able to do it in raw latex code using MikTex, etc. but can't seem to figure out how to get it to work in scientific workplace.  If I just highlight a 1 (in either math or regular text) and add blackboard bold it does not work.  

Does anyone have any ideas?

Latex 2.09 vs 2e

I have some old documents that I am trying to typeset, and am told that I should convert them from 2.09 to 2e.  This has happened before, a long time ago, and I was able to do it.  But I've forgotten how and can find no instructions.  How do I do it?

How can I change the label of figure.

 When I working with figure and really want them to appear in my pdf file more scientific way, problem is I can't set the label of figure in suit with the section I have.

For, example:

In chapter 1, I want the label of my figures apprear respectively like: figure 1.1 then 1.2, 1.3,... instead figure 1 then figure 2,... even they are in the same chapter.

The same problem I got when working with formular and I might fix it by advanced mode in property, but it is impossible to manually change when working with figure.

Best regards!

scartcl style


I do tech support for academics and one of my users has run in to a problem loading a file from a german colleague.  The error apperars when attempting to print preview or print to pdf and I think its because as style is not installed but as I'm very new to SWP I may not be looking at the right stuff. 

There's a series of 3 errors each of which point to scrart.cls not being loaded. 

How do I go about loading this folder and file?

Counter problem?

I use SWP 5.5, build 2960.

I'm working on a Standard LaTeX book style document, which is meant to hold a collection of examples of dynamic models. I want to refer to the models according to the chapter/section where they are given, i.e. 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, ..., 2.1, 2.2, etc. At the same time, I want to include a section on modeling principles first in each chapter, and I thought these could be numbered 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc. Also, I'd like to have an "overview" chapter, which could be Chapter 0.
