(I know about the "export >to TeX" feature, but it would be nice not to have to go back and >change notation after exporting to TeX.) The answer to your question "can this be done?" is yes. But I doubt this is a very useful answer since there are a large number of things that can be done but the process may not be the most efficient way to achieve the final goal. And you've not really indicated your final goal. What is the intent with the problem set you are creating? To be distributed to students? If so, how? If the final product is printed copy, then it might be reasonable to create everything from within Mathematica and print it from Mathematica. And clearly, if the final product is to be distributed electronically as Mathematica notebooks, the most efficient path would be to create things in Mathematica. -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
