Graphics in subdocuments don´t appear at all in masterdocument pdf file


I use SWP 5.5 on a Windows XP machine.
I want to create a master document, named Diss.
The master document has several subdocuments. I use ''import content'' for the subdocuments, since I have the content for each subdocument created as a normal document (here: NormalDocument1).
The graphics from the NormalDocument1 are saved in the same directory as the Masterdocument and the subdocument "doc1".

Roman numerals between chapters, Arabic numerals within chapters

I'll be easier, I think, to give an example of what I want. I'd like the body of my dissertation to have this appearance:



1.1 Notation


1.2 Some Definitions



More Content

2.1 General Overview


2.2 Specific Overview

Theorem - Non-English

 Hi, I'm a Vietnamese user. When I use Theorem tag, it displays "Theorem" (English). I want it display "Định lý" (Vietnamese) on PDF, so I open Preamble to modify code. However, I can't replace "Theorem" by "Định lý" because It can't be typed or pasted rightly (Unicode problem, maybe). How can I do it?

Thank you.

I am aligning two figures next to each other, each one with their separate captions.  But when I preview pdf the figures do not show up in the list of figures.

After working on a document and saving it, I tried opening it the next day and received the following error message:

XML Parsing Error: Location: file://///.psf/Home/Documents/work/energy%20markets/Diesel%20and%20Gasol... Line Number 2, Column 1:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a complete novice when it comes to LaTEX. I would like to install RevTEX 4.1 and all its accompanying files so I can use it with the Scientific Workplace 5.5...Can someone please give me complete and detailed instructions on how to do that?

Thanks in advance.

Space below a graphic

 Hi, im having problems with the captions of the figures im using in my thesis, the problem is that i don't know how to modify the space between the caption text and the figure, because the space is pretty much, i want to reduce it, how can i do it?, my figures are inline not floating. Any suggestion would be really appreciated. Another question would be how to justify or center the caption of the figure when the figure is inline not floating?.

Is there something like needspace.sty for SWP?  (I tried dropping it into the .tex file's directory, added it to packages, and ran SWP, but then SWP just waited forever.)

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.
