How to save in normal Latex format without "normalsize" tags

Postby enow » Fri May 13, 2011 5:10 pm

Hi all,

I sometimes send a Latex 'tex' file to a friend to edit. He uses Scientific Word (I use another Latex editor), and when he sends the tex file back, the tex file is full of "\normalsize" tags. These tags make it less easy to read and edit, and they also seem to change the text formatting when compiling.

Basically, theach paragraph/figure/table is now enclosed with a tag like this:

{\normalsize [...text_of_paragraph...] }


{\normalsize \noindent [...text_of_paragraph...] }

Does anybody know how this can be avoided, and if these tags can be removed? Maybe it is possible to save the file in standard latex format? I don't have Scientific Word installed myself.

Thank you in advance for your response.
