Hello Leon,
I am trying to reformat my old UM thesis with latex, but am running
into a problem that you posted on a mailing list. I don't see that
anyone ever answered it. I was wondering if you solved the problem
and could share the answer with me.
Thanks for any help you might have.
Matt

Hi, sorry for bothering you.
I am trying to finish my Dissertation and get some problems from Latex.
1) I have appendix with pictures which include the math mode like:
\begin{figure}[h!]
\centerline{ \epsfig{figure=fuselflapgamsig.eps,
height = 4 in}}
\caption{solid -- fuselage-flap, dotted -- elliptic
distribution. Top -- circulation distribution
$\Gamma(x)$. Bottom -- vortex sheet strength distribution
$ \sigma = \partial \Gamma / \partial s$. }
\label{fuselflapgamsig}
\end{figure}
then Latex gives me following error message
LaTeX Error: \mathrm allowed only in math mode
If I remove math mode, then it works, but it is really not
convenient. Why
shouldn't appendix allow math mode in figures?
2) My bibliography list starts with empty [1] reference and then with
[2]
it starts my references. I am not quite sure why it happens...
3) Is there some way to make it put all the figures of one section
before
another one starts? I have quite a few figures in certain sections and
they run all the way into next section. Which is a mess.
Thank you so much !
