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?  

Windows XP, SWord 5.50 build 2953

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?

How do I get rid of blank pages?

Hi everyone,

When I'm typesetting my dissertation, I get a blank page between chapters.  Have any of you encountered similar problems before?  How did you remove the blank pages?

Thanks a lot!

Hi all,

is there any possibility to get a maple-formula into an swp file? I'm using SWP 5.5. I already tried to follow the instructions in the swp help database to install maple as computation engine from an earlier version of SWP. Unfortunately, when I copy maple-output into SWP and try to use it for further computations, it is not interpreted correctly (the square of x is interpreted as 2x, for example).

Thanks in advance for any helpful comments!

How do I import a pdf image into a swp document?

I have a set of .eps files that I convert to .pdf using epstopdf --gsopt="-dPDFX=true" in order to ensure that all referenced fonts in the eps file are embedded in a portable way. I then want to import the pdf files into my swp file so that I can generate a pdf. This should be easy because pdflatex supports pdf graphics - but there seems to be no way to import using the import picture command. If I directly import the .eps files the pdf that is generated does not embed the fonts used in the eps files.

whats the best method to use?

Exporting All Fonts in a pdf

A common requirement for journal submissions is to ensure that all fonts used in a pdf are exported as part of the pdf. Unfortunately the default configuration of SWP5.5 can not do this. Using the TrueTex pdf generator leaves the default fonts (ie. Courier and Times-Roman) out of the pdf file.

If MikTeX 2.9 is used on the same .tex file then the pdf has the fonts correctly embedded. (using the expert typeset options to select an alternative formatter to invoke MikTex from within SWP).

Any suggestions?
