Features in Version 5.5
Version 5.5 adds the following
features to the compatibility,

plots. With newly-implemented
renderers, create 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 and plots in
cylindrical and spherical coordinates and vector fields. Define

the rate of frames per second.
inspect 3D plots. Rotate, move,
zoom in and out, and fly through 3D plots.
Explore plots and
animations with the VCAM window.
View plots in read-only or read-write documents using the MuPAD
VCAM window with playback toolbar controls. Use your mouse to
start, stop, re-run, and loop animations; change the animation
speed; rotate; and zoom—all from the VCAM toolbar.
Label 2D and 3D
plots. Now you can enhance your
SWP and SNB
plots with text labels that move with the plot when you rotate
or zoom. You can specify the location of the label within the
plot both horizontally and vertically, and you can set the
orientation of the plot precisely..

contents of files created directly in LaTeX or LaTeX2e into

a special non-SWP/SW LaTeX filter, even
if you can't open the files directly. The filter can read many
macro definitions not created with the program.

Typesetting Documents in Scientific
WorkPlace and Scientific Word provides more typesetting
tips and tricks, new information about LaTeX packages that have
been added to the program, and a brand new chapter on
troubleshooting problems that can arise.

documents as RTF files. You can
export your SWP, SW, and
documents as Rich Text Format (RTF) files, so that interactions
with colleagues in non-TeX
environments are simplified. The RTF export preserves the
formatting you see in the document window. Any mathematics in
your document can be represented with MathType 3 (Equation
Editor) or MathType 5 objects. The resulting RTF file can be
viewed in Microsoft Word even if an Equation Editor is not part
of the Word installation. If the Microsoft Word installation
includes the appropriate Equation Editor, any MathType 3 or
MathType 5 mathematical objects in the RTF file can be edited.
The file can also be displayed in outline mode.

Version 5, you can open and read the MathType equations in RTF
files when you import the RTF files in SWP, SW,
or SNB. The equations are
converted to LaTeX.
Create more accurate
HTML files. When you export your
SWP, SW, or
documents to HTML, the program places any graphics generated
during the process in a subdirectory. This version successfully
exports fixed-width tables to HTML and saves the screen format
to a Cascading Style Sheet (.css
file). With HTML exports, you can make your mathematics
available on various platforms over the Internet and in
applications that can read HTML files.

files, you can output your mathematics as MathML or graphics.
Note that not all HTML browsers support MathML.
