[OS X TeX] The Application LaTeXit, Illustrator and Lucida Fonts

I just tried the new application LaTeXit

I found that it solves my problem of not being able to properly  
import Latex equations and so forth into Adobe Illustrator X. This  
will allow me to label figures with equations. Yeah!

The only catch is that I find that I can't change the preamble in  
LaTeXit to use my Lucida fonts, for which I would normally put in my  

I've tried putting it at the beginning of the preamble, the end and  
right after the ams font definitions, eg.

\usepackage{amssymb} %maths
\usepackage{amsmath} %maths
\usepackage[applemac]{inputenc} %useful to type directly accentuated  

The fonts reside in my library ~/Library and it all works properly  
with TexShop. Somehow I suspect that LaTeXit isn't finding my fonts,  
so I suspect it isn't a LaTeXit problem but the way I'm calling it.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
--cheers, Gordon
