Re: Does PCTeX have proper e-TeX support?

(Cross-posted from LaTeX Community ) In trying to use the etoolbox package with PCTeX v6 (6.1, Build Fri Apr 16 13:29:46 2010), it looks like either PCTeX doesn't have e-TeX support, or etoolbox is checking for that support incorrectly. Since PCTeX didn't include etoolbox, or know how to get it fro...

Re: Auto-complete commands

I appreciate most of the auto-complete behaviors, but there are two PCTeX6 auto-complete behaviors between which I find one annoying and do not consider it to be "auto-complete" and the other is not a correct "auto-complete." Within a list environment, I find it annoying that ev...

Re: Sizing Graphics

I copy graphs from Mathematica 6, save them as Windows bitmaps with SnagIt 9 and import them into my PCTeX 6 document with the Graphics Wizard. They look horrible in the dvi file! They seem to look okay in a pdf and printed from the pdf, but when they look so "blotchy" in the dvi, I'm ske...

Installing a MTPro2 font in Y&Y TeX

I had little trouble installing mt2exa in Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.1 (ATM) under Windows XP SP2. Since an older version of mt2exa was already installed, the critical steps were: 1. In ATM, on the Add Fonts tab, Deactivate the existing MT2EXA from the font set that included it. (This has the effec...

Subscripts look too large in $p_1p_2$

An MTPro2 user wrote: When I typeset $p_1p_2\ldots p_n$ the subscripts 1 and 2 look too large when placed next to the p. To compensate for this I use $p_{{}_1}p_{{}_2}\ldots p_n$ to use 2nd order subscripts (the n looks OK as a subscript). Is there a better way to do this? Michael Spivak answered: T...
