# [OS X TeX] TeXniscope problems after LaTeX upgrade

```Hi,

This is an update to my own post about TeXniscope not being able to
display a DVI file after the upgrade to the latest LaTeX distro.

I have now isolated the problem further.  It has to do with the
'dvipdfm' option in the \documentclass declaration.

With the following declaration:

\documentclass[12pt,final,dvipdfm]{amsart}

TeXniscope cannot render the resulting DVI file, although I can
run dvipdfm manually and view the resulting PDF file with TeXniscope.

On the other hand, with the following declaration

\documentclass[12pt,final]{amsart}

TeXniscope does not complain, but when I run dvipdfm manually on the
file then I get an error.

Before the most recent upgrade to the latest LaTeX distro, this did
not happen.
