The LaTeX mathtime package

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

The package enables the use of PostScript New Font Selection Scheme (PSNFSS) MathTime fonts, including MathTime Plus fonts, in LaTeX documents. When you typeset your document, MathTime fonts provide ligatures and improved kerning in Times text. The mathtime package implements mathematics set in Times and calls the times package directly, so that documents containing both mathematics and text can use Times throughout, rather than a combination of font families. The result is a more portable document with a nicer appearance. When you add the mathtime package to your document, move it near the bottom of the Packages in Use list.

Note You must specify the No TS1 option in order for Mathtime to work correctly with the TrueTeX Formatter included with the program.

The mathtime package has several options for font use available through the Options and Packages command on the Typeset menu. The No TS1 option must be set for use with SWP and SW.

How to use MathTime fonts in a document

  1. On the Typeset toolbar, click the Options and Packages button Options and Packages button or, from the Typeset menu, choose Options and Packages and then choose the Package Options tab.
  2. Select the font package currently in use and choose Remove.
  3. Add the mathtime package to your document.
  4. Modify the package to select the No TS1 option.
  5. Choose OK.

The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/mathtime directory. See the online Help and the package documentation for more information about the implementation of the mathtime package in a TrueTeX environment. For more information, see the package documentation vailable through the program's online Help.
