I use Mathematica and LaTeX (previously MS-Word). I use EPS as standard exchange format for both (LaTeX/Word) which in both cases requires Magnification set to 1 while exporting. Any other setting produces wrong bounding boxes (in Mathematica 3.0). With this setting everything works. As a consequence you have to use a Postscript-compatible printer and/or Ghostscript to print the whole document.
Two remarks:
1. Font usage is a little tricky but works by including the *.pfa-files into the output-file (modify
2. Use Ghostscript to view ps/eps-files. I use it to view single pictures produced by Mathematica (you can look at the bounding-box too) and to view the resulting document. If a bounding box is wrong you can correct it using Ghostscript but I prefer the method described before.
Hope this helps, H.K.
