Hi
Just switched from miktex on a pc to mactex (texlive2008) on a mbp. 
Front end is acquamacs if relevant.

In miktex I could put a file of math shortcuts, nealshortcuts.tex in the 
texmf tree and then use it as input to any file.

Since I have switched, this only works if nealshortcuts.tex is in the 
same file i am texing. Output is below (edited).

Can any one point me to what i am doing wrong.

TIA
neal
