I'm sure this problem has come up before, but I must not have appreciated its significance at the time.. On a NeXT running OS 3.0 I have been using TeXice to prepare Encapsulated PostScript `swatches' of LaTeX output, which I intend to paste into Mathematica notebooks in order to produce nice equations. {We're using conventional TeX pk fonts, not re-scalable PostScript fonts.) Despite warnings from Mathematica [version 2.0 here at work, and 2.1 at home] when the PostScript is inserted in the notebook, the swatches **appear** just fine when viewed in the Mma notebook, and when the notebook is previewed (from the NeXT print panel) they also look just fine. However, when actually printed, the equations appear on separate sheets, and are entirely disconnected from the notebook. {While these notebooks were printed 4-up, the misbehavior still exists on conventional 1-up printing.) The same appears to be true of other apparently otherwise well-behaved PostScript graphics when inserted into a notebook. Has anyone succeeded in circumventing this problem?? --Thanks David M.
