Dear Win, Dear All,
I have some beamer presentations with drawings for which I use
They require typesetting via:
Aquamacs > Command > TeXing Options > Generate PDF
Aquamacs > Command > TeXing Options > DVI and PDF > dvips + ps2pdf
I used to typeset these presentations finely with Aquamacs, at least up to
a certain time in 2020. Now the typesetting produces wrong slides:
All beamer boxes get their shadows in black, and the headers of the
theorem-like boxes are covered with black banners. Below is a test file
and its pdf on my MacBook Air, macOS Big Sur V.11.2.2, TeXLife 2020, with
The same problem was by typesetting the files in TeXShop. I wrote to the
[OS X TeX] TeX and DVI in beamer problem
Herbert Schulz explained that the problem is in transparency with gs
9.53.3. Ghostscript version 9.51 and later (gs, ps2pdf) treat transparency
differently. A new option has to be passed to ps2pdf to allow transparency.
Herbert Schulzand helped by some specially developed engines, pointed in
the Thread above. I downloaded them, installed, and now the typesetting
goes finely in TeXShop. Because my drawings are large, you can try with the
test file by Herbert Schulz, which I included in the above Thread too,
together with the content of the problematic .log.
I hope you can fix that in Aquamacs, or perhaps find and tell what option
and how to pass it to ps2pdf.
