How to download and install a font scheme from the ftp site

Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

When new font schemes become available for SW version 2.5, you can download them from our ftp site, move them to the correct SW subdirectory, and then select the font scheme you want for the style in question.

Each font scheme consists of several different files, which must be downloaded separately and placed into specific subdirectories in your main SW directory. You must download all the files for the font scheme; otherwise, the scheme may not operate properly. Here's what to do:

  1. Download the font files from the ftp site and move them to the SW directory.

    Each scheme has three kinds of files, which must be placed into the correct subdirectories in your SW directory:

    • Font Family files - move to the \se subdirectory

    • Font Scheme files - move to the \se subdirectory

    • Font TeX files - move to the \tex\macro\styledit subdirectory

  2. Select the scheme you want according to these instructions:

    1. Start the Style Editor. If the Style Editor is already running, exit it and restart.

    2. Open the style in which you want to use the font scheme.

    3. From the Advanced menu, choose Font Scheme.

    4. Choose the Select Font Scheme tab.

    5. Select the font scheme you want.

      Note Even if the scheme you want appears to be selected, select it again.

    6. Choose Close.

    7. Save the style.
