I tried searching the archive regarding this issue, didn't see anything...
With all default settings, after opening and "typsetting" the
texstart.tex file the order of paragraphs in the preview display is
wrong. What I'm seeing is:
on page 3
Chapter 6 Graphics - Figure 1 is OK;
on page 4
Figure 2 is OK on the top of page 4.
then Chapter 7 - Tables
then Chapter 8 - Fonts as far as "it can however be a labori-"
Then Figure 3, and figure 3 caption of the Graphics chapter cuts in.
on page 5
The there is Table 1 and the rest of the "laborious process"
paragraph that was cut off, above. (The first paragraph of chapter 8).
A PDF's worth 1K words? Here's the output:
It's as though the table and last paragraph on page 5 should be on page 4.
iBook; Mac OS X 10.3.5; FreeBSD & Developer tools
I have access to Acrobat Reader 6.0, if that helps at all.
Following "the most simple beginner's guide":
Installed with i-installer v2.69
Selected the TeX set to install,
Basic install and 2004 TeX
Then I installed TeXshop, version 1.35
And downloaded texstart.tex
Given that this is my "first day" with TeX I have no idea where to
begin trouble-shooting this... is Tex OK but the LaTeX macros off?
Did texstart.tex work with the 2003 code but start failing with 2004.
Is this apparently "random" shuffling of paragraphs somehow
intentional? Is this a Mac OS-only problem? Is the problem in
Thanks for any assistance.
