About a year ago, I did a detailed “dry-run” using SmartBoard and Scientific WorkPlace (Notebook) to develop online mathematics lectures. The two worked well together but there were some difficulties. Recently, I used GoToMeeting to attend several online meetings and I think the GoTo… programs may be better suited and much cheaper for using Scientific WorkPlace to create interactive, online, technical lectures. Does anyone have experience with this? Is anyone interested in investigating this concept?

shortcut key ombinations to mathematical symbols

I know some from swp's documents, but not all. I wonder where I can find a complete list of the shortcut keys for all the mathematical symbols, and mathematical operation symbols, that will definitely speedup input of formulas, thanks!

html output - skipping environments

Is it possible for users add to htmlout.dat something that would allow you to skip the contents of an environment when producing html from swp5? Looking through htmlout.dat, I think I can see how to do this with a command; but I don't see how to handle environments.  What I'm looking for is that if something like the following appeared in the tex file:



stuff ...

more stuff ...



there should be nothing generated in the html file.

How to save in standard Latex format without "normalsize" tags

Hi all,
I sometimes send a Latex 'tex' file to a friend to edit. He uses Scientific Word (I use another Latex editor), and when he sends the tex file back, the tex file is full of "\normalsize" tags. These tags make it less easy to read and edit, and they also seem to change the text formatting when compiling.

Basically, theach paragraph/figure/table is now enclosed with a tag like this:

{\normalsize [...text_of_paragraph...] }

Index Entry

 When I compile PDF, I have problem that TrueTEX messages reported "Run LaTeX-PDG-TCIMAKEINDEX: no such .ini section". Therefore, I can't create the index entry in my book.

P/s: If I compile PDF normally (not check "Generate an Index"), It'll be well.

Help me, please! Thanks you.
