Problems with the alignment

Hi, I have several equations in my paper and I would like to number these. My problem is: I don't know how to align them so that they are just at the margin.

SW changes latex commands

To me (and to others in my lab), the main problem with Scientific Word is that is automatically changes latex commands in files made with other editors. Coauthors then get upset when they see that adjustments they had made before have disappeared, or even that a mess has been created (an example of catastrophy is what happens when a coauthor has used a \normalisize command).

Landscape Table from center to the top / placement of tables/


I use SWP 5.5., Deutsches Buch LaTeX style on a Windows XP.

My editor wants also this change (please see the sample file):

I have serveral landscape tables, I used the landscape package to create them. The example table is placed in the center of the page (see page 2 in the sample file).

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?

Any suggestion would be appreciated.


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.
