I tried to use latex2rtf but it did not work. I created very simple
fraction in Mathematica
\!\(x\_1\/x\_2\)
Then, I saved it special as test.tex file. Then I opened it in
Scientific Workplace and it shows as a tag named dispSFinmath.
Double-clicking on a tag brings up properties windows that has the
following text
\dispSFinmath{
\frac{{x_1}}{{x_2}}
}
I then used compile and it does not look like it looked in Mathematica.
I decided to skip the step of opening it in Scientific Workplace and
opened it in latex2rtf. I hit run and Command Prompt window pops out
with the following text
test.tex:31 Unknown style option notebook2e ignored
test.tex:31 Unknown style option latexsym ignored
test.tex:36 Command \dispSFinmath not found - ignored
Press any key to continue . . .
I hit any key and Command Prompt window disappears and test.rtf file is
created. However, when I open it in Word I see this
\F(x\s\do5(1),x\s\do5(2))
which does not look nearly as the embedded object I thought I would
see.
Please let me know what I am doing wrong
Thanks for help, Mukhtar Bekkali
