Message: Can't find file (filename)
Version: 3.5x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, &
You receive this message when you try to open a file:
find file (filename). Document may not load correctly. Would you like to
find file (filename). File (file.cst) will be used instead. Would you like to
The program displays this message when the document you're trying to open
requires a .cst file that is missing. The .cst file determines the appearance
of the document in the document window. This problem can occur when you're
trying to open a document from an outside source if that document calls for
typesetting specifications that aren't included with the program.
You have several options:
Choose Yes to ignore the message. The program
will open the document using sciword.cst, the default .cst file.
Instead of opening the document directly, start a new document using an
appropriate document shell and import the contents of the original document
Create a new subdirectory in the Styles directory of your program
installation, and name it the same name as the LaTeX class for your document.
Then, copy sciword.cst to the directory, rename it with the name of the
missing file, and try to open the document again.
If you're working with typesetting specifications not provided with the
program, follow the procedure for creating a .cst file for
typesetting specifications from outside sources.
