Makes Typesetting and Publishing with LaTeX Easier

Scientific Word Version 5 makes creating professional documents easy. With Scientific Word, you compose mathematical, scientific, and technical documents at the keyboard using natural mathematical notation. You can choose whether to publish your document on the Web using HTML or PDF or print it with or without LaTeX typesetting.

Typesetting Made Easy
In Scientific Word, you can choose to typeset complex technical documents with LaTeX, the industry standard for mathematics typesetting. Because of its superior precision and quality, publishers and writers of scientific material use LaTeX extensively. When you typeset, LaTeX automatically generates footnotes, indexes, bibliographies, tables of contents, and cross-references.

This typesetting power comes without your having to learn LaTeX. Many of the more than 150 document shells have been designed to meet the typesetting requirements of specific professional journals and institutions. Scientific Word automatically saves your documents as LaTeX files. You can concentrate on writing a correct paper; Scientific Word makes it a beautiful one.

Sharing Your Work Just Got Easier
With Version 5, you have new options for sharing your work. Scientific Word Version 5 now includes support for pdfTeX. Before passing your file to the pdfTeX processor, Scientific Word converts all the graphics in your file to a form that can be processed by pdfLaTeX. Also, documents that use the hyperref package produce PDF documents that are fully hyperlinked, with links in the table of contents and with hierarchical bookmarks corresponding to the structure of your LaTeX document. This combination of support for embedded graphics with a large variety of formats and full hyperlinking makes the PDF documents produced by Scientific Word superior both to the results of pdfLaTeX alone and to the results of Acrobat. When you use pdfTeX to print your document, you can use PostScript-related packages such as rotating or the PSNFSS font packages that were previously unsupported in Scientific WorkPlace.

Scientific Word now exports documents to RTF format for importing into Microsoft Word. The mathematics in your document are converted to Microsoft Equation Editor or MathType 5 format.

Increased Productivity
This software thinks like you do. Whether you prefer to use the mouse or the keyboard, entering mathematics is so straightforward there is practically no learning curve. Formatting is fast, simple, and consistent. In Scientific Word, you use tags to define the document structure and format it consistently.

Users have reported significant productivity increases when support staff use Scientific Word instead of raw LaTeX to typeset documents. Both technical and non-technical users can quickly learn to enter and number equations, create tables and matrices, and import and create graphics, all with pleasing on-screen mathematics and italics created with TrueType outline fonts.

Scientific Word has the tools that simplify writing and editing books and other large documents. It is perfect for writers in academic, industrial, and government institutions and in all scientific and technical fields: mathematics, physics, engineering, economics, chemistry, computer science, statistics, medical research, and logic.

The software comes with an extensive online help system and a series of reference manuals. If you need additional help, MacKichan Software provides reliable, prompt, free technical support.

International, Interoperable, Indispensable
Scientific Word simplifies working with colleagues in other locations. You can import text (.txt) and Rich Text Format (.rtf) files, and you can copy content to the clipboard for export as text or graphics to other applications. You can create .dvi or .htm files from your documents, or generate portable LaTeX output for seamless transfer to different LaTeX installations. The Document Manager simplifies file transfer by email or on diskette.

Spelling, font, and hyphenation support for languages other than English is available. You can switch languages in the same document using Babel, the multilingual LaTeX system. The software supports input using any left-to-right language supported by a version of Windows, including Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. It uses the in-place IME (Input Method Editor) for these languages. (The ability to typeset a language may depend on the availability of TeX for that language. Non-Latin character sets are typeset with Lambda, which is included.) Fully localized Japanese and German versions of Scientific Word are available now through our local distributors.

Scientific Word has a built-in link to the World Wide Web. If you have Internet access, you can open the file at any URL address from inside the program. Also, you can deliver content via the Web. The software supports hypertext links, so you can facilitate navigation for your readers through a series of related documents. Readers can view and print documents using Scientific Viewer, which we distribute at no cost.

New Features in Version 5
Compatibility
You can interact with colleagues more easily and distribute your documents in different formats when you take advantage of new and enhanced export filters in Version 5.

Export your documents as RTF files. You can now export your SWP, SW, and SNB documents as Rich Text Format (RTF) files, so that interactions with colleagues in non-TeX environments are simplified. The RTF export preserves the formatting you see in the document window. Any mathematics in your document can be represented with MathType 3 (Equation Editor) or MathType 5 objects. The resulting RTF file can be viewed in Microsoft Word even if an Equation Editor is not part of the Word installation. If the Microsoft Word installation includes the appropriate Equation Editor, any MathType 3 or MathType 5 mathematical objects in the RTF file can be edited. The file can also be displayed in outline mode.
Read MathType mathematics in RTF files. In Version 5, you can open and read the MathType equations in RTF files when you import the RTF files in SWP, SW, or SNB. The equations are converted to LaTeX.
Create more accurate HTML files. When you export your SWP, SW, or SNB documents to HTML, the program now places any graphics generated during the process in a subdirectory. Version 5 successfully exports fixed-width tables to HTML and saves the screen format to a Cascading Style Sheet (.css file). With HTML exports, you can make your mathematics available on various platforms over the Internet and in applications that can read HTML files.
Export mathematics as MathML. When you export HTML files, you can output your mathematics as MathML or graphics. Note that not all HTML browsers support MathML.
Typesetting
Version 5 provides new typesetting capabilities and many new document shells, some intended for international use.

Create typeset PDF files. Now you can share your work across platforms in PDF format by typesetting your SWP and SW documents with pdfLaTeX. No extra software is necessary to generate PDF files. The program automatically embeds fonts and graphics in the PDF file.
Use pdfTeX to process files that contain graphics. Until now, using pdfTeX with most graphics file formats has been tedious or impossible. Before typesetting your document with pdfLaTeX, Version 5 of SWP and SW converts any graphics in the document to formats that can be processed by pdfLaTeX.
Preserve LaTeX cross-references in PDF files. If you add the hyperref package to your document, any cross-references in your SWP or SW document are converted to hypertext links when you typeset with pdfLaTeX. The package extends hypertext capabilities with hypertext targets and references. Additionally, pdfLaTeX fully links the table of contents in the resulting PDF file and includes in the file hierarchical markers and thumbnail pictures of all the pages in the document.
Use LaTeX PostScript packages. If you create PDF files from your SWP and SW documents, you can take advantage of LaTeX packages, such as the rotating package.
Use expanded typesetting documentation. A new edition of Typesetting Documents in Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word provides more typesetting tips and information about more LaTeX packages. Learn how to tailor typesetting specifications from inside the program to achieve the typeset document appearance you need.
Examine an expanded gallery of shells. View images of sample documents for each shell provided with the program in A Gallery of Document Shells for Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, provided on the program CD as a PDF file. Use the documentation to choose document shells appropriately.
Choose shells tailored for international documents. Version 5 includes new shells for documents created in non-English languages, including German, Japanese, Chinese, and Russian. SWP and SW, in combination with TrueTeX, support international typesetting with the Lambda system.
Computation
Complex computational capability makes SWP and SNB indispensable tools.

Compute with MuPAD. In SWP and SNB, compute right in your document with the MuPAD 2.5 computer algebra engine.
Use enhanced MuPAD capabilities. The new MuPAD 2.5 kernel is an upgrade from the MuPAD 2.0 kernel included in Version 4.0. New features include improved 2D and 3D plotting, expanded ODE capabilities, an expanded Rewrite submenu, and an improved Simplify operation.
Compute with MathType mathematics in RTF files. If you open an RTF file containing MathType equations, the program converts the equations to LaTeX. In SWP and SNB, you can compute with the mathematics just like any other mathematics in SWP and SW documents.
Use an improved Exam Builder. The Version 5 Exam Builder is fully functional with MuPAD. Printed quizzes can be reloaded without losing their math definitions, just like other documents. Exam Builder materials generated with earlier versions using either Maple or MuPAD work successfully in Version 5.

Natural Mathematical Notation
Until now, traditional typesetting and symbolic computation systems forced you to use an array of commands and a complex syntax to represent your input. Many of these systems have over 2,000 separate operators, such as int and diff, that you must learn in order to create input. For example, if you want to integrate the expression

using a traditional computation system, you must enter it in linear fashion, int(x\2/sqrt(x\2-9),dx). To typeset it with LaTeX, you must write $\int\frac{x\{2}}{\sqrt{x\{2}-9}}dx$. A simple typing mistake would cause an error message.

Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook eliminate the need to learn complex syntax by using natural notation for input and to show results. With these products, you can enter mathematics easily with the mouse, or, as you gain confidence and familiarity, with keyboard shortcuts.

Here is how you enter the above integral using the mouse in Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook:

In Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook, the space key always moves the insertion point out of the object it is in, and the Tab key always moves the insertion point to the next input box in the current template, if there is one. Thus, in step 9, the first space moves the insertion point out of the radical, but leaves it in the denominator of the fraction. The second space moves it out of the fraction. Pressing the Ctrl key together with the up or down arrow key moves the insertion point up or down to a superscript or a subscript position. The space key returns the insertion point to the main line. Ctrl+up arrow followed by Ctrl+down arrow moves the insertion point to the subscript of a superscript position, not to the main line.

All the symbols in the main TeX fonts are available in Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook, which means you have everything you need to type mathematics. Also, if you know the TeX names for mathematical objects and symbols, you can use them (for example, holding down Ctrl while you type int enters an integral). You do not need to know TeX names to enter mathematics.

Product Philosophy
Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook are designed to increase productivity for anyone who writes technical documents, especially those containing mathematics. They are perfect for writers in all technical fields: mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science, economics, finance, statistics, medical research, operations research, logic, and more.

Logical Design Separates Content and Appearance
Our approach, known as logical design, separates the creative process of writing from the mechanical process of formatting. You apply tags to text to say what the text is; the software handles the job of formatting it. Logical design leads to a more consistent and attractive document appearance because choices of fonts, spacing, emphasis, and other aspects of format are applied automatically. Separating the processes of creating and formatting a document combines the best of the online and print worlds. You concentrate on writing a correct paper; our software makes it a beautiful paper. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word come with over 150 predefined document shells. Over 20 shells are available with Scientific Notebook.

Logical Design Is a New Way of Working
When you use a WYSIWYG system, you constantly give commands that affect the appearance of the content. You select text and then choose a font, a font size, or a typeface. You apply alignment commands such as center, left justify, and right justify. To center an equation, for example, you select it and choose the center alignment. In a logical system, formatting commands are replaced by commands that define the logical structure of the content instead of its appearance. Rather than center text, you create a title, a section head, or a displayed equation by applying tags to information in the document. The format of the title, the alignment of section heads, and the alignment of displayed equations are all determined separately by the properties of the tags you use. In Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, tag properties are determined by the document's typesetting specifications (a collection of commands that define the way the document appears when you produce it with LaTeX typesetting) and by the style (a collection of commands that define the way the document appears onscreen and when you produce it without LaTeX typesetting.) In Scientific Notebook, the tag properties are determined by the style only, since it does not include LaTeX typesetting.

Also, WYSIWYG systems divide documents into pages according to their anticipated appearance in print. To see an entire line, you often have to scroll horizontally because the screen dimensions and page dimensions do not match. In a logical system, working with pages is unnecessary, because the division of a document into pages has no connection to the document's logical structure. Thus, on the screen Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook break lines to fit the window. If you resize the window, the text is reshaped to fit it.

Logical Design Ensures a Beautiful Document Appearance
Our emphasis on logical structure does not ignore the fact that documents must still be printed in a readable, organized, and visually pleasing format, nor does it ignore the fact that you may not always need publication-quality output. With version 4 of Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, you can preview and print your documents in two ways. You can compile, preview, and print your documents with LaTeX to obtain a high-quality, typeset appearance, or you can preview and direct print without typesetting for a near-WYSIWYG appearance. With Scientific Notebook, only direct printing is available.

Typesetting Features
In Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, you can typeset your documents using LaTeX, the undisputed industry standard for typesetting mathematical text. LaTeX provides automatic document formatting, including margins, hyphenation, kerning, ligatures, and many other elements of fine typesetting. LaTeX also automatically generates document elements including the title pages, table of contents, footnotes, margin notes, headers, footers, indexes, and bibliographies.

Because Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word communicate with LaTeX for you, you can concentrate on what you do best—creating the content of your document—without worrying about LaTeX syntax. You don't need to understand LaTeX to produce beautifully typeset material, but if you do know TeX or LaTeX commands, you can use them in your Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Word documents to make the typesetting even more precise.

Take advantage of these typesetting features of Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word:

Formatting variety with predefined document shells. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word come with over 150 predefined document shells, each with a different typeset appearance and many designed to meet the formatting requirements of specific journals and academic institutions. You can choose the shell that's most appropriate for your journal or publisher. If you don't know yet where your work will be published, we recommend that you start with one of the standard LaTeX shells, which can be easily adapted after your paper has been written.

Typesetting control. Each document shell has a LaTeX document class and may also have LaTeX packages. Both the class and the packages have options and settings that create a more finely typeset appearance for your document. The available options and packages depend on the shell, but typically govern the ability to modify the formatting for typesetting details such as different paper sizes, portrait or landscape orientation, double-sided printing, double-column output, different font sizes, and draft or final output. You can change the options and packages with the Options and Packages item on the Typeset menu.

Additional LaTeX packages. The supplied LaTeX packages provide even more control. By adding packages to your document, you can achieve a variety of typesetting effects. For example, you can add packages that switch between single and multiple columns of text on a single page; create endnotes from footnotes; or govern the appearance of footnotes, including their numbering or symbol scheme.

Easy generation of front and back matter. You can create a table of contents easily by inserting a command into the Front Matter section of your document. When you typeset your document, LaTeX automatically generates the table of contents from the section headings you have created. Similarly, you can create an index by inserting index entries throughout your document, and letting LaTeX generate the index pages. An index can have primary, secondary, and tertiary references, and can also point the reader to other entries in the index.

Automatic numbering of theorems, lemmas, and other theorem environments. You can number theorems, lemmas, propositions, and conjectures in a variety of styles. You control whether they are each numbered in the same or separate sequences, so that your theorem environments might be numbered as Theorem 1, Lemma 2, Theorem 3, Conjecture 4, Lemma 5..., or as Theorem 1, Lemma1, Theorem 2, Conjecture 1, Lemma 2.... As an option, you can reset the numbering at the beginning of each chapter or section, and you can include the chapter and section numbers in the number.

Automatic cross-referencing. You can create automatically generated cross-references to equations, tables, figures, pages, and other numbered objects elsewhere in your document. You don't have to know the object or page number in advance. When you typeset, LaTeX inserts the number of the referenced object in the text.

Automatic bibliography generation. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word include BibTeX for automatic bibliographies. You select references from a BibTeX database of references, and BibTeX formats them according to the bibliography style you select. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word also include tools for the maintenance of the BibTeX database. LaTeX Packages such as EndNotes can save references in BibTeX format.

Publishing on the Web
The factors to consider in publishing mathematics-intensive documents on the Web are the same as publishing any other content online: Who is your intended audience? What browser do they use? What is their connection speed? What other software is available to them? The answers to these questions will influence your choice of Web publishing tools and viewing options.

Your Web Publishing Options
With Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook, you can create mathematics-intensive information for the web in several ways:

Create .tex files. You can create your document as a .tex file, just as you would create any other Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook document. No special action is required. You can then place the file directly on the Web. When the file is saved to a reader's Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook installation, any mathematics in the file is live.
If you have Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook, view a .tex file on our website.
Create HTML files. With Version 4 or above of our software, you can export your .tex file as HTML. All mathematics and plots are ordinarily exported as graphics, although you can choose to export mathematics as MathML. The mathematics in an HTML file is not live.
View the same .tex file exported to HTML.
Create PDF files. With Version 5 of Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Word, you can compile your file with pdfLaTeX instead of LaTeX. The result is a stunning PDF file that you can post on the web. Since Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word convert all the graphics in your document to a form that pdfLaTeX can use, there are no limitations on the kinds of graphics you can include (as there are if you use pdfLaTeX without our software). If you use the hyperref package in your document, your PDF file will be fully hyperlinked with links in the table of contents and with hierarchical bookmarks that reflect the structure of your document.
View a PDF file created using pdfLaTeX.
View the .tex file used to create the above file.
With Scientific Notebook, if you have Adobe Acrobat Writer installed, you can create PDF files of your documents. From the File menu, choose Print and then select either Acrobat Writer or Distiller as your printer. There will be no hyperlinking in the file.
View the PDF file created from the .tex file produced with typesetting.
View the PDF file created from the .tex file produced without typesetting.
Your Readers' Viewing Options
Your readers can access .tex, PDF, or HTML files created with Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook in a variety of ways. Each has advantages and disadvantages.

Using Scientific Viewer
If your readers don't have Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook, we recommend that they use our free Scientific Viewer to access the Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook documents you place on the Web.

Advantages:

The software is free for the reader.
The mathematics that can be displayed and accessed is unlimited.
The files can be downloaded quickly.
Readers can print high quality documents from your website.
Links to HTML files and TEX files can be intermixed.
Disadvantages:

Readers must download the free software before viewing your document.
Scientific Viewer is currently available only for Microsoft Windows? platforms.
Of course, your readers can also use any of our software products---Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook---for maximum flexibility.

Using HTML
Any document created with Version 4 or above of Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, or Scientific Notebook can be exported in several HTML formats. You can export any mathematics and plots in these graphics formats: .bmp, .dib, .emf, .gif, .jpg, .png, or .wmf.

Advantages:

The HTML output filter creates an accurate HTML version of your document.
Readers can view your documents on many computer platforms with recent versions of the most popular browsers.
You can further manipulate the HTML files with other Web authoring tools.
The HTML filter interprets any HTML commands in your document.
Disadvantages:

The files download relatively slowly (though more quickly with MathML).
The mathematics is not live.
Using MathML
When you export to HTML, any mathematics in the document can be exported as MathML. MacKichan Software is a corporate member of the MathML standard committee, and is committed to supporting XML and MathML. Our products can produce documents using MathML designed for viewing by Netcape Navigator 7 and above, MathPlayer (a free MathML rendering plug-in from Design Science), and IBM techexplorer.

Advantages:

The HTML output filter creates an accurate HTML version of your document.
You can further manipulate the HTML files with other Web authoring tools.
The HTML filter interpret any HTML commands in your document.
Disadvantages:

The mathematics is not live.
MathML is not supported by all HTML browsers.
MathML is interpreted differently by different browsers, so not all readers may see the same thing.
Using PDF
Readers who have the free Adobe Acrobat reader can read PDF files created from Scientific WorkPlace Version 5 and Scientific Word Version 5 documents using pdfLaTeX. Authors with Scientific Notebook can create PDF files by using Adobe Distiller.

Advantages:

The software is free for the reader.
The mathematics that can be displayed and accessed is unlimited.
The files download moderately quickly.
Readers can print high-quality documents from your website.
Links to HTML files and PDF files can be intermixed.
Disadvantages:

Readers must download the free software before viewing your document.
Using Latex2Html
Latex2Html is a freeware program that converts LaTeX files to HTML. Because HTML can't display mathematics correctly, Latex2Html converts mathematics to graphics (.gif) files.

Advantages:

Any browser will display the resulting file, although some problems may arise.
Readers need only their current browsers instead of additional software.
Disadvantages:

The conversion of mathematics to graphics causes several problems:

File sizes expand quickly.
Graphics files of mathematics are compressed bitmaps that look acceptable on the screen but grainy in print.
When readers magnify text, the size of graphics files of mathematics may be too large or too small.
Graphics files can't be magnified for visually impaired readers.
The baselines for text and mathematics may not always line up.

Preparing PDF files with Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word
The PDF format is a good format for presenting mathematical and technical content on the Internet because the Adobe Acrobat Viewer is nearly universally available, and the format allows software to include in the PDF document all the fonts that are necessary to render mathematics well. Further, the format supports hyperlinking and bookmarks.

Version 5 of Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word now supports pdfTeX
Now in Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word you can typeset your file with pdfLaTeX to produce a PDF file. You can, of course, still typeset with LaTeX to produce a DVI file. The Typeset menu has three additional items: Preview PDF, Print PDF, and Compile PDF.

When you use pdfLaTeX, you can also use several LaTeX packages that previously have not been supported by Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word because they require PostScript printers. These packages, including rotating and the PSNFSS font packages, can now be used when you compile with pdfTeX. When the hyperref package is included in your document, the PDF file produced is fully hyperlinked with links in the table of contents and with hierarchical bookmarks that reflect the structure of your LaTeX document.

One problem with pdfLaTeX has been that it allows only a very few graphics file formats, so to get the benefits of producing a PDF file, you had to forego using most graphics file formats. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word solve this problem by converting all the graphics embedded in your document to PDF format before calling pdfLaTeX.

In the past it was possible to produce PDF files from Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word by printing the DVI file using the Acrobat Distiller printer driver. This method, however, does not preserve the hyperlinks in your LaTeX document. This is still the only method of producing PDF files with Scientific Notebook.
