That's my impression, too.  It wasn't until I tried to print a 
document that it generated the LaTeX code and made a PDF.  I open the 
LaTeX code in TeXShop and made another PDF that to me looked 
identical to the one ScientificAssistant made.

I don't know what their formula and table support was like in 
OPENSTEP, but I'm curious as whether it will generate LaTeX on the 
fly to preview your equation or table.
