Equation printing and numbering

Post by LongTermUser » 2007-10-31 07:53:24

I am using Nisus Writer Pro. I am converting my old NWC documents which contain many equations, equation numbering and cross referencing. My equation editor is MathEq/Expressionist. The problems that I am having are

1 The equations are not printing well. They print with low resolution. What do I do to fix this?

2 I have set up an equation list numbering but the equation numbering is on the left side instead of the right side of the page.

3 I am having problems with baseline recognition. Many of my equations are designed for inline with the test flow. I can apply lower baseline 4 times for proper alignment. Is there a simpler way to correct this? Even for the equations that are numbered I have to adjust the baseline. In some of my documents there are over 1000 MathEq/Expressionist entries.

What version of Nisus Writer are you using? You may want to see if the NWP 1.0.2 public beta fixes the problem. If not, please send a sample document to us using the menu Help > Send Feedback.

I'm not sure I understand. Can you simply right-align the paragraph?

If all the images in your document are equations that need to have their baseline adjusted the same amount, you could use a macro:

Code: Select all

Set Selection 1, 0	# move to start of document
# process all inline images in the document
While Select Next Image
	# lower baseline four times
	$count = 0
	While $count < 4
		Format:Baseline:Lower Baseline
		$count += 1
	End
End
Otherwise, you might just have to go through and manually tweak things.

Equation printing format.

MathEQ/Expressionist can support many equations formats which when copied and pasted back into the editor are recognized so that no information is lost.

A possible solution to this problem is if there is a preferred equation format(s) that NWP works well with?

NWP 1.0.2 public beta still does not fix this problem of low resolution when printing MathType equations.

The public beta is much worse with Mathtype Equations than the previous version. In fact, it is unusable.
