[duxuser] Re: Scientific Notebook



Wouldn't it be easier to open the LaTeX file that SN creates in, say, WordPad and then do a find and replace on the LatEx code that SN use for a new paragraph? For a new line SN uses "\\" (without the "). I'm not sure what is used for a new paragraph indecator.

Sorry. I should never have mentioned the fractions. I was trying to point
out that the fairly few math bits that Omnipage has problems with are very
easy to fix in Scientific Notebook. That is NOT, I repeat, NOT the problem. The problem is the FORMATTING. Somehow SN ends up with a "new paragraph"
indicator at the end of EVERY line and then sends it to Duxbury. I don't
want it to do that. For the problem sets in the book, I'm trying to put each
problem on a new line, and SN treats each one as a new paragraph, and then
so does Duxbury. I don't want it to do that either.
   I only mentioned Omnipage because I was wondering if saving the file as
a different type of file in the first place would help. I now don't think it would, because whenever I try for a new line in SN, it automatically indents it and I can't find anything in the manual or online help about how to make
it quit doing that.
   This is getting really frustrating...

If you need to recognize a document with a lot of math, none of the
mainstream OCR packages are going to deal with it well.

You'll want to use InftyReader software, along with InftyEditor. You can
output LaTeX, which should then load into Duxbury for Nemeth production.

Staff here have created a list of LaTeX codes/issues that don't (or at
least didn't, with the previous version of Duxbury) translate:
