How to import the contents of a LaTeX file into an SW document

Version: 2.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

In Version 5.5, import LaTeX files with the non-SWP/SW LaTeX filter.

Although some LaTeX files can be opened in SW even if they were not created by SW, a safer process is to import the contents of the LaTeX file into an SW document. From within SW, follow these steps:

  1. From the File menu, choose New or click the New button on the Standard toolbar.

  2. Choose the style you want for the new document.

  3. From the File menu, choose Import Contents.

  4. Select the LaTeX document whose contents you want to import.

  5. Choose Open.

  6. Save the new document.
