I have emailed you a new version where those pairs are simply replaced by a single point. See if it helps.

What do you mean by "MikTex" vs "PCTeX"?
Did you create Postscipt or PDF output?
Which Postscript or PDF viewer are you using?
Are you using different viewers in both environments?
Does the result depend on the way the output was created,
or does it depend on the previewing program used?

With PCTeX, I'm using PCTeX's own previewer. With MiKTeX, I'm using the Yap previewer that comes with MiKTeX. I'm viewing directly on-screen the dvi in each case that is created by running that TeX system's latex command.

Please, make sure to use the latest version of the fonts, both on Y&Y-TeX and on MikTeX. It seems as if you had erroneaoul y installed wrong tfm and/or pfb files on MikTeX.

I'll check this Wednesday.

I just checked this again after replacing from mtp2fonts.zip.tpm dated 3/25/2006 all the files that go into localtexmf, executing again command mkfntmap, and refreshing MiKTeX's file database. (I even replaced with the 3/25/2006 versions all the pfb's and pfm's that go into the separate location where Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.2 expects to find them and re-activated them in ATM.)

Still a _subscript_ \sim does not preview correctly in Yap nor print properly from Yap: The left and right ends of the character are very thick.

NOTE: This happens ONLY at the default size of 10pt for the document class. If I use option [11pt] or [10pt], on the other hand, the subscript \sim is normal!

Here's the (now simplified) source file:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[subscriptcorrection,slantedGreek,nofontinfo,mtpbb,
eucal,boldalphabet]{mtpro2}

\begin{document}
$\sim X_{\sim}$
\end{document}

You need to delete the old mtpro2-related pk files.

Aha! That fixes the problem. I thank you. And I think Michael Spivak will be happy to see that this problem has gone away.
