Interesting replies. Mostly that it works better under Unix/Linux and
Mac. My fault for not saying I use windows. The sine qua non is that I
am not changing the editor that I have been using, with appropriate
upgrades, for 22 years. No version is made for Unix or Mac, so they are
not options. I am so comfortable with that editor (Kedit, if you are
interested, but I am not advocating it for anyone else) that it feels like
an extension of my fingers.
Phillip Taylor suggests that one can just use Winedt for compiling and
viewing and another editor for editing. Maybe I will try it; my dept has
a site licence so it would even be free.
The suggestion of just using latex and converting to pdf at the end (or
using pdflatex at the end) is a good one, except in this case, I am
dealing with reprinting a book that comes with its own hand-drawn graphics
in a format I have never heard of (png) and I thought I would get away
with putting a wrapper on and using pdfpages. There seem to be problems
so I will go back to compiling it (sans graphics) until I solve them and
only then use pdflatex.
Anyway, thanks for all the suggestions.
