In reply to rjek Hi Rob Although I have the TechWriter manual at hand, I can't say I've looked in it more than ten times, and then only to look up something very specific - I remember looking up how to set up a matrix once. ( although, in reterospect, it's obvious ) Just press some buttons - see what happens - live a little ! More seriously, it does force your documents to be structured in a certain way which, if what you really want is Desk Top Publishing, is going to feel restrictive. But the point of TechWriter (and LaTeX) is to forget about the document style and focus on what you want to say. TechWriter is a model RISC OS application that works in standard and intuitive ways in the RISC OS style.

In reply to Jwoody Hi James, I've looked up Mackichan's Scientific Word - $748.50 seems a lot (as I'm not a student) to find out if it can come close to matching TechWriter + RISC OS GUI. My goodness - how little we pay for our RISC OS applications ! Would anyone who is competent in using both care to comment ?
