Adding LaTeX packages to the program installation

Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

You can use a package that isn't provided with SWP or SW:

  1. Obtain the package from a source such as the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN).

  2. Add the package to your program installation in the TCITeX/TeX directory or one of its subdirectories.

    You may want to create a new subdirectory for packages that aren't part of the original program installation.

  3. Modify the program interface so that the package and its options are available via the Options and Packages dialog box.

Modifying the interface is optional, but simplifies working with the added package. Alternatively, you can go native to specify package options.
