As I work with a coauthor who uses SciWord (which I do not), I can appreciate that. We often have problems exchanging .tex documents which are perfectly valid LaTeX (she has more problems reading my .tex files into SciWord, which objects to various constructs). I counsel PhD students to stay far away from SciWord, as it produces non-portable LaTeX even when the 'export as portable' option is chosen. And as economists, why should we pay for something that is free, and avoids all these interchangeability problems?
