    This is to give you advance notice that we will be closed for business during the week of Monday 20th. to Friday 24th. August inclusive, to allow for our office relocation to new premises in East Yorkshire. The new address is already shown on our web site at https://www.sciword.co.uk/company.htm , although our Lo-Cost 0845 phone and fax numbers will stay the same (as will our Email and web addresses). Please take a moment now to update your records to prevent any future Orders and payments going astray in the post.

     We'd also like to ask, if you will be requiring further copies of Scientific Word, Scientific WorkPlace or Scientific Notebook before the end of August, that you place your Order no later than next Wednesday 15th. August, so that your systems can be shipped out before the week's closure. Please let us have any such Orders by fax, by Email or directly from the Licence Calculator at https://www.sciword.co.uk/pricing.htm , for our immediate receipt and processing.

    And here's a gem especially for those users who are interested in the details of LaTeX (the typesetting system underlying Scientific Word and Scientific Workplace): we recently came across "The very short guide to typesetting with LaTeX". This PDF document gives an overview of how to use LaTeX commands, in a single-sheet A5 booklet format - we've made it available for download from our website at http://www.scientific-word.com/veryshortguide.pdf (364k). If you've ever needed to insert a TeX field in a Scientific Word/WorkPlace document, or enter commands in the Preamble, this should prove a useful reference. We hope you enjoy it!

    We only Email the Scientific Word family three or four times a year; however, if you no longer wish to remain on our mailing list so as to receive information of updates and new developments, a simple Email or postal reply to this effect will suffice.
