To make the preview image, you should modify Path settings in a 
Preference window.
Did you try the way below?

I forgot to support some symbols like \propto. If you find them, please

I didn't think over the case using this version of RPN2TeX with amsmath

If you want to use symbols like \nless, please add 
"\usepackage{amssymb}" to Preamble in a Preference window and type 
"\nless" in the input field.

Sorry, I can't understand.
Please see <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/> for list
guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
