While statistical software is imperative for quantitative and qualitative data analysis, being able to produce high quality typeset text to showcase the results is very important. To help instructors and researchers with this task, MacKichan Software just released version 6 of its three software: Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word and Scientific Notebook.
Version 6 offers a choice of operating system: Windows or OSX and also allows saving and exporting documents in multiple formats taking advantage of a new Mozilla-based architecture. A new look with streamlined layouts for the toolbars and symbol panels allows the users to easily navigate through the commands.
Version 6 maintains the front-end side of the software to LaTeX saving the time and efforts for users to learn the syntax of LaTeX.
The new version offers extensive document production features including importing files from earlier versions, multiple document production options, preview and print directly from the program window, improved and scalable fonts with support of left-to-right and right-to-left languages.
Version 6 allows users to draw 2D and 3D plots with plenty of options to enhance and animate the graphs.
