Creating bold mathematics

Version: 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, & Scientific Notebook

Use the Bold Symbol tag to create boldface mathematics without otherwise changing the font used for variables, math names, and symbols. The tag automatically starts mathematics. If you apply the tag to a selection, the selection is changed to mathematics.

The Bold tag doesn't yield the same results. These examples show the difference.

Original expression in mathematics:$x=r\cos \theta $

Expression with Bold tag:$x=r\cos \theta $

Expression with Bold Symbol tag: $\QTR{bs}{x=r}\cos \theta $


  1. Select the mathematics you want to tag as bold.

  2. From the Text Tag popup list, choose Bold Symbol.

    or

    From the Tag menu, choose Apply and then choose the Bold Symbol tag from the Apply Tag dialog box.

The appearance of mathematics tagged as Bold Symbol depends on the tag properties and whether or not you typeset your document.
