I have been desperately trying to export some graphs I generated in
Mathematica into external files which I can include in a power points
presentation I have to give early next week. My problem is that seemingly no
matter what font I use, the Export command gives me an error message
indicating an arcane Postscript error. When I then try to view the figure I
get more errors indicating that certain fonts were not found and that
certain symbols won't display properly. Do tell. For instance, when I export
to PDF and read the result into Adobe Acrobat, all my minus signs look like
dots, all my parentheses look like unreadable figures, etc. I've tried a
variety of different fonts in the Mathematica coding that generates these
files. And I've tried different export types (e.g., Windows Metafont). There
is obviously something basic I'm missing, although I've scourered the FAQ at
Wolfram and the Help Browser. All this stuff indicates that what I'm trying
to do ought to work just fine with the possible exception of an export to
EPS, which I've long since abandoned. Any guidance or direction to an FAQ or
help resource that actually clarifies this would be really appreciated! Many
