How to change the typeset division numbering scheme

Version: 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Use TeX commands in the preamble of your document to number your headings according to a particular scheme:

  1. From the Typeset menu, choose Preamble.
  2. Click the mouse in the entry area.
  3. At the end of the preamble entries, type \renewcommand{\level}{scheme{counter}} where level is the level of the division you want to renumber, such as thechapter, thesection, or thesubsection; scheme is the numbering scheme, such as Roman or arabic; and counter is the counter for the division level, such as part or chapter.
  4. Choose OK to return to your document.

For example, to produce chapters with uppercase roman numerals, sections with capitalized alphabetic characters, and subsections with arabic numbers, use these commands:

\renewcommand{\thesection}{\Alph{section}}

\renewcommand{\thechapter}{\Roman{chapter}}

\renewcommand{\thesubsection}{\arabic{subsection}}
