We recommend you update to version 6.0.13, following the Installation instructions below.This version now includes the open-source vector graphics editor Inkscape, for both the Mac and Windows platforms. We use this to convert Windows WMF and EMF graphics files for display and for PDF generation. Until this version, this was not possible on the Mac, and conversion of WMF and EMF files on Windows required installing a virtual printer driver that could not be installed by our installation problem.
This change means that the import of version 5.5 TeX files containing WMF and EMF graphics is now possible on the Mac, and much easier on Windows. It also allows the use of SVG graphics in all of our products. The installation of Inkscape is an option in our installation program, but we strongly recommend installing it unless you are certain that you will never need to display WMF, EMF, or SVG graphics files in your documents. This brings us much closer to our goal of making our documents platform independent.
What do you think of the clear benefits? We’re interested in gathering your feedback for future development. Please let us know:I do not like the new version. I do not see any useful additions. Some things, that I knew how to do in the old version, I have to rediscover with the new one. It takes much time, and I do not see clear benefits yet.
This software is way too good to keep to yourself! Why not tell your friends...let us know if you no longer wish to remain on our mailing list.
