Has any one succeeded in using Mathematica 3.0.1 (or just 3.0) under Windows 95 to convert an entire Notebook to a TeX source file? I'm talking about using the File > Save as Special > TeX menu (although I suppose the same results should follow from evaluating a cell containing a TeXSave expression. After initially being able to do so with one such file, I found that some macros were missing from the notebook.sty file distributed with Mathematica 3.0.1. After replacing it with one from ftp.mathsource.com, the resulting (La)TeX file from the conversion did run without error in LaTeX (more precisely, in LaTeX2e after obvious hand-editing the \documentstyle command), but the typeset document has horrendous errors in it, e.g., TeX commands appearing as text. Now I've tried to do the .nb -> .tex conversion of a much shorter, seemingly simpler notebook, I cannot even get the conversion to work to completing without it crashing my system. Of course, I desperately need to be able to get this to work right away. Any suggestions -- besides killing myself? -- Murray Eisenberg Internet: murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
