Scientific Word Version 6 brings you the ease of entering text and mathematics in natural notation in an easy-to-use word processing system. Now running on OS X®, as well as on Windows®, with its entirely new Mozilla-based architecture, Scientific Word 6 provides more flexibility for your workplace. You can save or export your documents in multiple formats, according to your publication and portability needs. Your documents are saved as xml files which makes them completely portable across platforms. Sharing your work with colleagues is easier than ever.

All of the MacKichan Software products share the same easy-to-learn, easy-to-use scientific word processor. You can create mathematical and scientific documents easily, combining text and mathematics in a completely integrated environment. Scientific Word 6 allows you to compose and edit complex documents directly on the screen without having to think in a programming language.

Scientific Word 6 enhances important features that were present in earlier versions of the program: compatibility with other software and systems; a rich interface based on the logical separation of content and appearance; the natural entry of text and mathematics; and the ability to typeset complex technical documents with LATEX, the industry standard for mathematics and scientific publishing.

Because Scientific Word 6 is a front end to LATEX , you do not have to learn the LATEX syntax. When you typeset, LATEX automatically generates footnotes, indexes, bibliographies, tables of contents, and cross-references.

 

 

New Look

The program window has been completely redesigned to provide easy access to the tools you need to create and navigate documents. In addition to the standard menu bar at the top, there is a status bar at the bottom and several other customizable toolbars just above the text entry area. 




Document Production

Documents and all files related to them (embedded files, plot files, etc.) are automatically bundled together. In Scientific Word 6 you only need a single file bearing the extension .sci to share a document.

You can seamlessly import LATEX files created with earlier versions of the program, and can export any document as a LATEX file.

In XML and XHTML files, Version 6 represents your mathematics as M ath ML. This makes it easy to create XHTML web files for the representation of your mathematics on various platforms over the Internet with a browser. The recommended browser for Version 6 is Firefox, not Scientific Viewer.

Scientific Word 6 gives you multiple document production options. You can choose whether to preview or print directly from the program window when you are ready for output, or you can view your document in a browser. With Scientific Word 6, you can typeset your document when you need the extensive document formatting that LATEX and pdfLATEX provide.

New to Scientific Word 6, you may Undo an unlimited number of previous editing changes from your current session within a document.

Scientific Word 6 allows you to check your spelling in realtime. With the inline spell checking from MySpell, you can catch any misspellings. MySpell, which is open-source, includes dictionaries in over 40 languages. Misspelled words have a wavy red underline.

Scientific Word 6 speeds document formatting with a new visual interface for page layouts. Common tasks, such as section head and footnote formatting, are simpler. This new WYSIWYG interface translates directly to  TEX . There is little or no need to use the document preamble or raw TEX commands to achieve the page format you want.

Fragments in Version 6 can contain text, mathematics, TEX strings, XHTML code, graphics, or anything else that can go on the clipboard. The program comes with a few pre-defined fragments. Information in fragments can carry tags, and fragments from each document are available to all.

Tables in Scientific Word 6 are made easier by a new visual interface. Rows and columns will resize automatically to fit the amount of information being entered; you can also manually resize them. 

Scientific Word 6 gives you improved and scalable fonts. Use pdfLATEX or  XƎTEX to create documents with a wide variety of scalable fonts. With XƎTEX you can use any OpenType font installed on your computer, as well as Unicode and associated extended Unicode TrueType fonts. The program includes the latest version of  LATEX and AMS macros. The packages yield ligatures and kerning in all text when documents are typeset.

Version 6 supports any left-to-right or right-to-left language that is supported by your operating system.

The manual, Creating Documents with Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word Version 6, by Clint Hicks, is a guide to the substantial changes in this new version. Written as an introduction for new users, as well as giving existing users information about the important changes to the functionality of our programs, this manual is available as a download, but can also be purchased in paperback.

Increased Productivity

While you are doing the work of creating content, you do not need to be distracted by formatting tasks. Scientific Word 6 does that work for you. With so many available output options, each with a different purpose and appearance, taking the time-consuming approach of trying to make the document on the screen look as much as possible like the printed document is simply not necessary.

Because the document window does not correspond directly to the size of online or printed pages, the program does not display page divisions or fixed line lengths on the screen; lines are broken to fit the size of the window. When you preview the document, you will see the page divisions correctly. Our programs use styles and tags for formatting documents, which can be printed directly or saved as XHTML files for use on your website.

Scientific Word 6 provides direct access to the Internet from within the program.

 

New Features in Version 6

Version 6 expands important features that were present in earlier versions of the program: compatibility with other software and systems; a rich interface based on the logical separation of content and appearance; the natural entry of text and mathematics; the ability to perform mathematical computation with MuPAD 5® inside your Scientific WorkPlace 6® and Scientific Notebook 6® documents; and easy creation and production of complex, highly formatted printed documents.

Multiple Platform Capability

Now with Version 6 you have a choice of operating systems: Windows® or OS X®. With its entirely new Mozilla-based architecture, Version 6 provides more flexibility for your workplace. You can save or export your documents in multiple formats according to your publication and portability needs. Your documents are saved as XML files, making them completely portable across platforms. Sharing your work with colleagues is easier than ever.

New Look


The program window has been updated with streamlined layouts for the toolbars and symbol panels. Most tools work the same way they did in earlier versions, with a mouse-activated tooltip giving the name of each toolbar button and panel symbols. With Version 6 you can display your document with or without XML tags, as XHTML source code, or PDF (except in Scientific Notebook).

 With Version 6 you can display your document with or without XML tags, as XHTML source code, or PDF Display with XML tags.

Easy Sharing of Documents 

Documents and all files related to them (embedded files, plot files, etc.) are automatically bundled together. You only need a single file bearing the extension .sci to share a document. You can seamlessly import  TEX files created with earlier versions of the program, and you can export any document as a  TEX file. In XML and XHTML files, Version 6 represents your mathematics as M ath ML. This makes it easy to create XHTML web files for the representation of your mathematics on various platforms over the Internet with a browser.  Note that the browser recommended for Version 6 is Firefox, not Scientific Viewer.

Document Production

REVTEX
REVTEX is a package of  LATEX macros designed for preparing physics manuscripts. The software includes a shell with typesetting specifications for producing typeset documents for several different publications.

MuPAD 5®

Version 6 uses MuPAD 5 as the embedded computer algebra system.


Natural Mathematical Notation

Until now, traditional typesetting and symbolic computation systems forced you to use an array of commands and a complex syntax to represent your input. Many of these systems have over 2,000 separate operators, such as int and diff, that you must learn in order to create input. For example, if you want to integrate the expression
x2x29dx
using a traditional computation system, you must enter it in linear fashion, int(x\2/sqrt(x\2-9),dx). To typeset it with LATEX you must write $\int\frac{x\{2}}{\sqrt{x\{2}-9}}dx$.
A simple typing mistake would cause an error message.

Scientific WorkPlace®, Scientific Word®, and Scientific Notebook® eliminate the need to learn complex syntax by using natural notation for input and to show results. With these products, you can enter mathematics easily with the mouse, or, as you gain confidence and familiarity, with keyboard shortcuts.

Here is how you enter the above integral using the mouse in Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook:


 

You can also enter the integral using only the keyboard. Here we use "Ctrl+i" to mean hold down the Ctrl key while you press the "i" key:

 

In Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook, the space key always moves the insertion point out of the object it is in, and the Tab key always moves the insertion point to the next input box in the current template, if there is one. Thus, in step 9, the first space moves the insertion point out of the radical, but leaves it in the denominator of the fraction. The second space moves it out of the fraction. Pressing the Ctrl key together with the up or down arrow key moves the insertion point up or down to a superscript or a subscript position. The space key returns the insertion point to the main line. Ctrl+up arrow followed by Ctrl+down arrow moves the insertion point to the subscript of a superscript position, not to the main line.

All the symbols in the main TEX fonts are available in Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook, which means you have everything you need to type mathematics. Also, if you know the TEX names for mathematical objects and symbols, you can use them (for example, holding down Ctrl while you type int enters an integral). You do not need to know TEX names to enter mathematics.

Logical Design

Product Philosophy

Scientific WorkPlace®, Scientific Word®, and Scientific Notebook® are designed to increase productivity for anyone who writes technical documents, especially those containing mathematics. They are perfect for writers in all technical fields: mathematics, physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science, economics, finance, statistics, medical research, operations research, logic, and more.

Logical Design Separates Content and Appearance

Our approach, known as logical design, separates the creative process of writing from the mechanical process of formatting. You apply tags to text to say what the text is; the software handles the job of formatting it. Logical design leads to a more consistent and attractive document appearance because choices of fonts, spacing, emphasis, and other aspects of format are applied automatically. Separating the processes of creating and formatting a document combines the best of the online and print worlds. You concentrate on writing a correct paper; our software makes it a beautiful paper. Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word and Scientific Notebook come with predefined document shells.

Logical Design Is a New Way of Working

When you use a WYSIWYG system, you constantly give commands that affect the appearance of the content. You select text and then choose a font, a font size, or a typeface. You apply alignment commands such as center, left justify, and right justify. To center an equation, for example, you select it and choose the center alignment. In a logical system, formatting commands are replaced by commands that define the logical structure of the content instead of its appearance. Rather than center text, you create a title, a section head, or a displayed equation by applying tags to information in the document. The format of the title, the alignment of section heads, and the alignment of displayed equations are all determined separately by the properties of the tags you use. In Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, tag properties are determined by the document's typesetting specifications (a collection of commands that define the way the document appears when you produce it with LATEX typesetting) and by the style (a collection of commands that define the way the document appears onscreen and when you produce it without LATEX typesetting.) In Scientific Notebook, the tag properties are determined by the style only, since it does not include LATEX typesetting.

Also, WYSIWYG systems divide documents into pages according to their anticipated appearance in print. To see an entire line, you often have to scroll horizontally because the screen dimensions and page dimensions do not match. In a logical system, working with pages is unnecessary, because the division of a document into pages has no connection to the document's logical structure. Thus, on the screen Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, and Scientific Notebook break lines to fit the window. If you resize the window, the text is reshaped to fit it.

Logical Design Ensures a Beautiful Document Appearance

Our emphasis on logical structure does not ignore the fact that documents must still be printed in a readable, organized, and visually pleasing format, nor does it ignore the fact that you may not always need publication-quality output. With Version 4 and later of Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word, you can preview and print your documents in two ways. You can compile, preview, and print your documents with LATEX to obtain a high-quality, typeset appearance, or you can preview and direct print without typesetting for a near-WYSIWYG appearance. With Scientific Notebook, only direct printing is available.


Typesetting Features

In Scientific WorkPlace® and Scientific Word® Version 6, you can typeset your document using LATEX , the undisputed industry standard for typesetting mathematical text. LATEX   provides automatic document formatting, including margins, hyphenation, kerning, ligatures, and many other elements of fine typesetting.  LATEX also automatically generates document elements including the title pages, table of contents, footnotes, margin notes, headers, footers, indexes, and bibliographies. The resulting PDF file can be distributed, printed or be used to drive typesetting equipment.

Because Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word communicate with  LATEX for you, you can concentrate on what you do best–creating the content of your document–without worrying about  LATEX syntax. You don’t need to understand  LATEX to produce beautifully typeset material, but if you do know  TEX or  LATEX commands, you can use them in your Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Word documents to make the typesetting even more precise.

Take advantage of these typesetting features in Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word:

Formatting variety with predefined document shells. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word come with predefined document shells, each with a different typeset appearance and most are designed to meet the formatting requirements of specific journals and academic institutions. You can choose the shell that is most appropriate for your journal or publisher. If you don’t know yet where your work will be published, we recommend that you start with one of the standard LATEX shells, which can be easily adapted after your paper has been written.

Typesetting control. Each document shell has a  LATEX document class and may also have  LATEX packages. Both the class and the packages have options and settings that create a more finely typeset appearance for your document. The available options and packages depend on the shell, but typically govern the ability to modify the formatting for typesetting details such as different paper sizes, portrait or landscape orientation, double-sided printing, double-column output, different font sizes, and draft or final output. You can change the options and packages with the Options and Packages item or with the Document Format item on the Typesetting menu.

Easy generation of front and back matter. You can create a table of contents easily by inserting a command into the Front Matter section of your document. When you typeset your document, LATEX automatically generates the table of contents from the section headings you have created. Similarly, you can create an index by inserting index entries throughout your document, and letting  LATEX generate the index pages. An index can have primary, secondary, and tertiary references, and can also point the reader to other entries in the index.

Automatic numbering of theorems, lemmas, and other theorem environments. You can number theorems, lemmas, propositions, and conjectures in a variety of styles. You control whether they are each numbered in the same or separate sequences, so that your theorem environments might be numbered as Theorem 1, Lemma 1, Theorem 3, Conjecture 4, Lemma 5…, or as Theorem 1, Lemma 1, Theorem 2, Conjecture 1, Lemma 2…. As an option, you can reset the numbering at the beginning of each chapter or section, and you can include the chapter and section numbers in the number.

Automatic cross-referencing.  You can create automatically generated cross-references to equations, tables, figures, pages, and other numbered objects elsewhere in your document. You don’t have to know the object or page number in advance. When you typeset,  LATEX inserts the number of the referenced object in the text.

Automatic bibliography generation. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Word include BibTEX for automatic bibliographies. You select references from a BibTEX database of references, and BibTEX formats them according to the bibliography style you select. Programs and browser plugins, such as Zotero, save references in BibTEX format.

 

Computer Algebra Systems

A computer algebra system, or CAS, is a mathematics engine that performs the symbolic computations fundamental to algebra, trigonometry, and calculus. Recent versions of Scientific WorkPlace® and Scientific Notebook® (after Version 4.1 Build 2347) include the kernel to the computer algebra system MuPAD®.

With MuPAD 5®, you can evaluate, factor, combine, expand, and simplify terms and expressions that contain integers, fractions, and real and complex numbers, as required in simple arithmetic and algebra. You can also evaluate integrals and derivatives, perform matrix and vector operations, find standard deviations, and perform many other more complex computations involved in calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and statistics. Additionally, you can create 2D and 3D plots of polynomials, trigonometric functions, and exponentials, and you can create and explore animated 2D and 3D plots.

Features and Capabilities of MuPAD

We have created an interface to the MuPAD kernel to make it easy to use with Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook. In addition, the system accepts input and creates output using natural mathematical notation, the basis for our scientific word processors. Performing computations in Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook is easy.

Computational Functions. Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook provide a wide range of the graphic, numeric, and symbolic computational functions available with MuPAD. The programs provide ample functionality for both simple and sophisticated mathematical computations involving calculus, ODE, matrix manipulations, statistics, linear algebra, and 2D and 3D plots. Also, you can access additional functions available to MuPAD—even if they don't appear as items on the Compute menu—with the Define MuPAD Name menu item.

Animated Plots. With MuPAD, you can create a variety of animated plots: animated 2D plots in polar coordinates, animated 2D and 3D plots in rectangular coordinates, animated 2D and 3D implicit plots, and animated 3D tube plots in cylindrical and spherical coordinates and vector fields. You can rotate, move, zoom in and out, and fly through 3D plots.

User-defined Functions. With MuPAD, you can create user-defined functions (.mu files) with an ASCII editor, even if you don't have access to a full MuPAD installation. The files are easy to manipulate and are powerful tools for users interested in programming. Working in a Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Notebook document, you call the function with the Define MuPAD Name command.

Available Functions. While Scientific WorkPlace and Scientific Notebook provide many functions available with MuPAD, not all capabilities are included. Programming packages, certain plot types and options), and manipulation of the position of highlights and shadows in 3D plots aren't available. Scientific Notebook doesn't have 3D implicit plotting with either CAS. Additionally, some limitations exist regarding the placement of text on plots and the use of different types of plots on the same graph. Iteration and condition commands (such as if, elif, else, fi, for, while, do, and od) aren't available.

Publishing on the Web with Version 6

When you want to publish your document on the web, you simply choose “Export to Web” on the File menu. This will save your document, any graphics files your document references, the CSS files used by your document (which govern your document’s on-screen appearance), and any other necessary files to a single zip file. You can then expand the zip file on your web server.

There are several options available when you export your document.

  • Since the basic set of CSS files used in our programs are built into the programs and are not changeable, you can choose to replace these by references to files on the mackichan.com website. This reduces the size of your site slightly, but means your files will not be readable without an Internet connection.
  • All mathematics in the document will be represented by M ath ML, which is fully supported in the Firefox browser since it is a part of the specification of html5 . You can either require that your readers use a browser that supports M ath ML natively, or you can include a reference to MathJax. MathJax is a JavaScript library that enables any browser to render M ath ML. Doing this will make your document readable by any browser, but the rendering of mathematics will be slower than in Firefox.

It is also possible to post documents in PDF form, and users will generally be able to view them in any web browser, and follow links just as in an html file.


 
Check Spelling, Version 6

On the Windows® platform spell checking in realtime is provided using inline spell checking from MySpell. MySpell provides a free open-source dictionary for over 40 languages. Misspelled words have a wavy red underline.

There is also a Check Spelling dialog box where you can choose to replace a misspelled word, or to ignore the suggested corrections. You may also specify which language to use.

On the Mac® the spellchecker uses the OS X® dictionary.
