Hi Roger, Please see my responses below. On Aug 3, 2009, at 4:46 AM, divisor wrote: > Hello Larry & MathGroup: > > Does using Publicon obviate the need for LyX completely? Yes, if you are only trying to produce LaTeX formats that are supported by Publicon. However, Publicon is neither a TeX editor nor viewer. TeX is merely a document export format, and you may, at some point, need to edit the TeX output directly for publication (to finesse page breaks for example). > > Can you say if Publicon will be subsumed under/inside TeXForm[]? No, TeXForm[] is used primarily for converting mathematical expressions one-by-one. If you want to export an entire document, you must use LaTeX export. > > What does Publicon do with active elements (e.g. Manipulate[], Dynamic > [], et.al.)? Publicon is currently incompatible with these new active elements, they would have to be converted to static objects or graphics.
