We replied:"what i do for define a function?"
Please try it yourself with the sample document we sent him.To set a definition, put the cursor in the expression and click on Compute – Definitions – Set Definition. You can check by clicking on Compute – Definitions – Show Definitions. Then you can use Compute – Evaluate to work out f(x) – see the document attached.
Hope this is helpful. Further technical support is available from the distributor who sold the software to you, on production of your serial number.

Our initial suggestions were to use the Repair utility (see the July 2010 mailing, Item 2) and the automatic backup (.bak) files. However, it turned out that the problem was that the documents in question were all subdocuments of a master document he had renamed. He (rightly) commented:"A serious problem has arisen with my copy of SciWord 5.5.
Unfortunately then when I compile the file two things started to happen.
The file would refuse to compile, because all of the "packages in use" (in the options and packages dialogue) had disappeared. If I add them back in, one by one, I can then compile but (a) the chapter head no longer appears as it should and (b) sciword now closes itself when I try to open (previously non-corrupt) documents and (c) the packages disappear again."
Hopefully this note will help prevent others who use master and subdocuments from experiencing the same problem."It seems also that I'm not entirely to blame! A sub-document knows the name of its master-document, but it seems that if the master document cannot be found (because I have re-named it or moved it) sciword does not issue a warning message..."
PDF installation instructions are available at version 5.5 and version 5.0 .
"I'm Michael. When using Workplace 5.5, I wonder whether there is a possibility to plot 2d or 3d graphs without units or numbers at the axes. The axes should be there, but more general.
Thanks for your answer"
Our reply assumed he meant something like the attached. Why not download it yourself, right-click on the graph and then select Properties – Axes to see how this is achieved? Note that this is related to July 2010 (Item 4) and December 2011 (Item 4).
