WorkPlace® and Scientific
Version 6, you
can typeset your document using
the undisputed industry standard for typesetting mathematical text.
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. The resulting PDF file can be distributed, printed or be used to drive typesetting equipment.
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
syntax. You don't need to understand
to produce beautifully typeset material, but if you do know TEX
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 in Scientific
WorkPlace and Scientific Word:
Formatting variety with predefined
document shells. Scientific WorkPlace and
Scientific Word come with
predefined document shells, each with a different typeset appearance and
most are designed to meet the formatting requirements of specific journals
and academic institutions. You can choose the shell that is 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
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 or
with the Document Format item on
the Typesetting menu.
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
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
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 1, Theorem 3, Conjecture
4, Lemma 5..., or as Theorem 1, Lemma 1, 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
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,
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. Programs and browser plugins, such as Zotero, save references
in BibTEX format.
