Hi, I use Scientific Word on Windows 7 SP1 and have the 100% CPU usage problem.

Haven't you found a solution for this Problem, yet? It is really annoying!

How to include code not to be processedby SW? html.sty not there


This is SW 5.5 on windows. I use Latex2html to process my latex files generated by SW. However, I need to include html.sty package in order to use some commands for latex2html own purposes.

I normally write



latex command here which is meant for Latex2html only \end{htmlonly}

Since SW does not come with html.sty, when I end doing is comment all the above lines before I run the document by SW. Then when I want to run the document by Latex2html, I uncomment the lines again, and run it there.

SWP solves incorrectly


It gives the solution x=1, but the left side of the equation is not defined in x=1

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.

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.
