Hi Doug,

thanks for looking into it !
Indeed the combination of Equation Service with Create should be perfect 
doing slides with formulas... I use Create most happily since at least
6 years, in its Nextstep incarnation, and IMHO has always beaten the 
at least for what I am using it for.

For me Create crashes totally independently from the form of the 
If I insert one formula and then copy-paste to get multiple copies of 
it, nothing
happens. However the moment I insert a new formula, it crashes
instantly - I have already sent a crash report log to them.
I use OSX 10.1.5 and Create 10.6 from Aug 22.

BTW pasting Equation Service pdf output into Powerpoint gives quite 
ugly-looking formulas;
ie.,  inserting one and then enlarging it shows that it is essentially a 
bitmap, while
in Create it scales as it should.
[Perhaps another manifestation of my point that just _porting_ apps, 
rather than cocoa-natively
doing them from scratch,  ultimatiely damages rather than helps the case 
of OSX...]
