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.

Accent marks, diacriticals and bibtex

Not a question - just a tip to try to save someone from the 4 hours it cost me trying to fix this problem.

Pascal's triangle

Can you suggest a way to place Pacal's triangle neatly into an SWP document?  I tried doing it with a table but that yielded a cumbersome result, far too wide and hard to understand.  The only alternative I can think of is to do it as a graphic and import it into SWP.

Thanks..........Gene Saletan

Figure - once more

 Hi John - ref. my question with regard to adjusting text in swp5.5 figures (see below). Your suggestion function well - thanks! However, there is some problem to get enough space for the text if you try to place it (text) outside the axis (and the border) which we normally do (please, see attached figure). Any suggestions?
