Software for writing technical papers and reports

  1. Sep 23, 2010 #1
    Does anyone have suggestions concerning software which would be good for including numerous graphs, tables, and visualizations....some equations.

    I'm aware of the usual (and use them), including Latex, Lyx, JasperReports (in Java), etc.

    I'm just looking for something better....more like JasperReports but without having to deal with the idiocy of programming in Java

    Years ago I thought Scientific Notebook was very convenient. Scientific Workplace had more features but I never tried that. They have trial versions available so you could see what you think of them before buying.

    I am paid absolutely nothing by them, was simply a happy customer.
