We replied:"I got the picture in place as you suggested, thanks. But I can't see how to get a caption associated, nor how to resize the picture (if that is possible)."
We expect there are other users glad to have these points clarified."To add a caption, right-click on the graphic and select Properties. Then on the Labeling tab, enter your caption in the bottom box marked Caption Text, and use the Placement radio buttons to select whether the caption should go above or (usually) below the graphic; it is possible to have both, though I don’t know why you’d want to.
Back on the Layout tab, select the Placement of your graphic as InLine (the graphic is like a word in the paragraph), Displayed (centred on a line of its own) or Floating (activates the automatic numbering, Fig. 1 etc, and permits cross referencing using the Key you enter on the Labeling tab).
You can re-size a picture by using the scaling (or the size) dialog boxes on the Picture Properties tab – or by dragging the black boxes that appear around the graphic when you left-click on it."
Use this one with caution!"...we expected that with a larger document you would have time to increase the number of passes manually. If not, you can go to Typeset – General Settings and check the box to ‘use old .aux files if possible’; this means that two runs with the compiler will serve the same purpose as one run with two passes. <snip>
In future, first save the document and then run Typeset – CompilePDF twice before Typeset – PreviewPDF. Be aware that if you omit the two compiling stages, LaTeX will still fill in the total page number (from the previous compiling) but it may be incorrect – this probably won’t be too critical until your final version of the document."
In other words, when he entered:"I get a strange result when I ask scientific workbook to verifyln(xy)=lnx+lny is false "
and clicked Compute – Check Equality, the program responded "is false". (Your school days may be a long time ago, and your use of log tables a dim and distant memory. But this is not the answer you'd expect...) We were able to shed some light by replying:ln(xy)=lnx+lny
Try it and see! Please remember to unassume(positive) afterwards, as the online Help indicates."Ahh – there’s a little wrinkle in the online Help – Search – log – log – logarithmic functions, computing: in the section Properties of Logarithms it explains:Once you do that it’s business as usual, and things work as expected. Sorry for the inconvenience."You can demonstrate properties of logarithms with Simplify and Combine. First, you must restrict the variables to positive values. In mathematics, type assume (it will automatically turn gray), then evaluate the expression assume(positive).
Our reply:"what is main purpose of latex in computer system?"
That being the case, you might want to refresh your memory about how to import LaTeX files created outside Scientific Word/WorkPlace, which we covered in our February 2013 mailing (Item 6). It's a question we get asked quite a lot..."Thanks for your question. LaTeX is a document markup language – it’s the international standard for typesetting mathematical documents: you can read all about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaTeX. Our program Scientific Word gives an easy Windows interface to the power of LaTeX.
