Howdy,

It looks as though everything went well!? I'd first try to delete the  
LaTeXiT preference file, just in case something went wrong with it.  
The file is fr.club.ktd.LaTeXiT.plist found in ~/Library/Preferences/.  
Hopefully that will fix it since I'm not having problems here.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
