They're placed as graphics and not editable?

Have you tried making a .eps of the .pdf and placing that as a graphic?
Should work fine, but then one has the lousy bitmap preview problem :(

All of these difficulties underscore the desirability of having TeXShop
provide the same sort of TeX->.eps functionality which InstantTeX
afforded. (see the manual of same on my web-site at http://members.aol.com/willadams/gnustep/apps).

I've been experimenting somewhat with the PostScript output of Mac OS X,
and it's rather odd (an inkjet shared to the network using GhostScript
gets a pale yellow background behind everything printed to it from any
app _but_ Acrobat Reader in Mac OS X....)---again, this underscores that
Display PostScript is a tough  act to follow...
