This cannot be done in a normal Windows setup because the notebook front end can access only those fonts that are supplied by the operating system itself. Adobe Type Manager makes it possible to use Type 1 fonts in this manner, however. Once it is installed and configured, all Type 1 fonts that you have made available to ATM will be usable as fonts. > The question is, perhaps more general, since I would like to be able to > access the Wolfram fonts when I print TeX documents with dvips.

To use the Type 1 Math fonts in a PostScript file generated by DVIPS, you will need to use Jens-Peer Kuska's Mathematica Virtual Fonts Package. If you are a Mathematica 3.0 user, you can get this package from the General -> Utilities section of MathSource. The package is bundled with the Mathematica 4 CD-ROM in the directory: ToFileName[{$TopDirectory, "SystemFiles", "IncludeFiles", "TeX"}] The documentation for the pacakge is a LaTeX document. texmf\doc\wolfram\msymdoc.tex If you would like a PostScript version of this file, you can contact Technical Support. http://www.wolfram.com/services/techsupport/contact.html http://www.wolfram.com/services/techsupport/Hints.html Other applications that can use Type 1 fonts should have as part of their documentation a means of specifying where Type 1 fonts are on your system. You will need to consult the products' documentation to determine whether your goal is a feasible one. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
