[Alphatk has been observed to work fine with tetex, but not with oztex]

James, Michael, (and the list)

Thanks to James sending some more info, I understand the problem.  I need 
to look into this a bit more to know just how to solve it.

Currently Alphatk will only cooperate with command-line TeX tools (via 
'exec').  It contains all the functionality to cooperate with TeX tools 
(like OzTeX) via apple-events (just like Alpha on classic does), but there 
is an issue about how to switch between the two, and how to know which of 
the two to use!

I will be looking into this asap.  There are a few things you could try 
which might fix this for you straightaway:

(1) Manually set 'texSig' to the 4-character application signature of OzTeX 
(in the Tcl shell), and then try again.

(2) If that fails, set a trace (using the Alpha Developer menu) on 
'evalTeXScript' and try again -- use 'dump traces' and see if the trace 
tells you anything useful.
