marginnote installation


I have reinstalled my computer, with win 7, and use some extra packages, and got problems with marginnote. The error message is trying to preview my document is:

package marginnote error: seems you are not running e-tex

This happens even if I run truetex on marginnote.ins. Anyone knows what to do?

Footnotes in display box

Is it possible to insert footnotes in a display box? There is text not mathematics in the box, but I would like to leave the text in the display box so that it comes underneath a series of equations. Scientific word lets me insert the footnote but then it doesn't show up in the pdf file.  Any suggestions pleasE?

Thank you very much.

Figures in description list item aren't seen in the same place in pdf file

 I am writing  10 questions with the tag "description list item". My questions include both text and figure. I am using wrapfig package to be aligned text and figure side by side (or in a same row) .  When I use tag ""description list item" to write question number, after typesettingdocument, figure goes far below the text of question( to the end of paper, i.e., after 10th question). But If I don't use any tag, it works well, i.e., it alignes text and figure of question.

Producing an arc over AB in SWP 5.5

There was an earlier post on this by George, I think, but I couldn't find it.  I've attached a SWP .tex file that works for me.  Instructions are in the file.

Derivative of cc Bessel function wrong?

If one takes derivative of a complex conjugated Bessel function [say, BesselJ0(x)* ] then one gets a strange result -- the BesselJ1(x) with minus sign is multiplied (!?) by BesselJ0(x)*  (see attachment).

Either the engine makes the mistake or I have missed someting...  

Try the operation and say give your diagnosis....

I use SWP 5.50 Build 2960

Typesetting documents with .eps graphics to .pdf

  • I'd like to typeset a document to a .pdf that contains .eps files. I've had some success using the dvips option as explained here, but once I switch to the dvips option, the graphics no longer appear when I use the typset->compile PDF option. Is there a way to use the dvips option and still generate pdf files? Thanks, Jeff

Modifying section tags


I'm trying to change some of the properties on the sections tag. e.g. making the "Section" tag centered when you print it or have it surrounded by a blue-green box like the "Heading 2" in a Notebook doc. 

I'we been looking a while, and I have been able to change some properties in the Tag -> Appearance window. But it only seems to change the properties when I am using the program, and not when I compile it to a pdf.

Is there a way this can be done?

Tnx :)

Typesetting .eps files

I am having trouble with .eps figures in my document. Certain features of the figure, such as the title, do not typeset properly. I am using SWP5.5 and have tried using the dvips option of the graphicx package as explained in the support document ##248: Problem with EPS Files (Use the dvips Option with the graphicx Package). However, this does not solve the problem.
