How to add a package to a style

Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Some styles use packages that enable SW to customize your document in some way, such as by choosing the language for typesetting or creating an index. In SW, follow these steps to add a package to a style:

  1. From the File menu, choose Style.

  2. If the package you want isn't visible, choose Add a Package.

  3. Click the arrow next to the Base Package box.

  4. Select the package you want. If the package isn't visible:

    1. Click Go Native.

    2. When the Go Native dialog box opens, position the insertion point on the line after the last entry in the Packages box.

    3. Type the name of the package you want, enclosed in curly braces, like this: {packagename}.

    4. Choose OK.

  5. If options are listed for the package, select the option you want.

  6. Choose OK twice.
