comment Package for more creative text formatting in latex
wow! Tikz is just like inDesign now (but better because one can do math with it). very nice. I am going to learn Tikz once someone puts a GUI front end to it :)

Could you post the Mathematica expression itself? i.e. in Mathematica own expression?

Try PDF-chain, and not DVI->PDF chain. That is what I have and it works.

comment is it possible to add dashed lines between rows/column of pmatrix from amsmath?
Thanks for the answer.Unfortunately I can't use it with SWP now as I said, I can't change the code after \begin{document} as SWP does not understand array so the above will not display on the GUI. But please keep this answer, it is useful and I can use it when I graduate to using raw Latex one day.

comment is it possible to add dashed lines between rows/column of pmatrix from amsmath?
@egreg Yes, ofcourse it does. But then why would I use the GUI in the first place? :) I am trying to typeset very complicated matrix with lots of math (aerodynamics have so many subscripts and superscripts) and it is much easier to do it using SWP at this time. I could not do it using raw Latex. Not good yet. I'll be late finishing the HW if I write all this using raw Latex.

comment Alternatives to LaTeX
I tried MathMagic plugin with inDesign. It was terrible. It is just like using the equation editor with Word. Has to go through loops to finally enter an equation. One equation. That is it. After 10 minutes of using it, I uninstalled the whole thing, and also uninstalled indesign (was trial version). With no direct Latex support inside indesign, I mean direct support, indesign will never make it in science, math and engineering. Ok for magazines and articles. Nothing more.

comment What is the 2014 status on converting Word and MathType to LaTeX
What is wrong with just using the mouse and copy/paste text paragraphs one by one from word document to the text editor used for Latex? For the equations, I understand there is a tool allready. For the graphics, one uses \includgraphics and just point it to the image. Lets assume it takes 5-10 minutes to do one page by hand using this method. This means it will take about say one day to convert 50 pages? So lets say one week to convert the whole book? Lets double this as factor of safety. So this is 2 weeks work using the manual copy/paste method.

comment How to break this long radical into multiple lines?
I'd use \equiv to define something. so (\alpha \equiv \widehat{BDC})
