Sciwheel Word plugin/Desktop App Changes

Summer/Fall 2021:  Important information regarding changes to Sciwheel Word plugin & desktop app
Sciwheel has launched a new Sciwheel 365 add-in in response to a growing number of Microsoft 365 users. They will continue to develop this new add-in and will begin to phase out support for the original Sciwheel Word Plugin and desktop app, fully discontinuing support of the older, original Word plugin & desktop app August 31 [just for the original, older version]. 

For more information and instructions on downloading/installing the new Word 365 Sciwheel add-in, see the Sciwheel video here.

  • Download the new 365 Sciwheel add-in from the Tools drop down in Sciwheel or directly via the Microsoft (MS) app store.
  • OR you can download it from within Word by selecting the insert tab and clicking on Get Add-ins. From the Store tab search for Sciwheel.
  • Once installed the Sciwheel add-in tab will be added to your Word ribbon. If you have both the older and newer add-ins installed, the newer one will usually be the one on the right. Once you open the new add-in, you will see the Sciwheel icon to the far left.  Click on it to open and use.
  • When using the desktop version of Word, to access the add-in after installation via Appsource, you will have to go to Insert > My Add-ins in Word to refresh the list before the add-in is shown.  
  • Do not use both add-ins within the same document.
