[texworks] graphics problem

Hi Bruno,

I have now tried to output eps-files from Mathematica, and convert them on
the fly with epstopdf. The problem persists with TeXworks, and not all files
are embedded in the pdf-file. 

I do not have Ghostscript installed, so perhaps that is the problem?

I think that would work, yes. epspdf or epstopdf would use the Times etc
clones included in Ghostscript as substitutes for the missing original Times
etc, and embed them when creating the PDF files.

You can try with the PDF files attached to my last message, see if the
TeXworks problem persists with test-math-pdf.pdf and is cured by
test-math-epstopdf or test-math-epspdf.pdf. For example you can save the
attachments to disk, create alongside them a test file

\includegraphics[scale=.9]{test-math-pdf} \\
\includegraphics[scale=.9]{test-math-epspdf} \\

and see whether the problem shows up for the first graphics on recompilation
and whether the other two graphics solve this problem.

Hope this works,


PS As soon as there's transparency, though, the above wouldn't work since
the EPS format doesn't support transparency (or in any case Mathematica's
EPS output doesn't).
