I've been resuming use of LaTeX lately, after a period of +/- 2 years
without really using it.
After a couple of typesetting in TeXShop I had a font rendering issue
in the PDF (the kind that if you open multiple times the document, the
fonts may be different from one time to another).
After googling the net I've found some type of solution (eg. here : http://www.macresearch.org/fixing-broken-latex-fonts-leopard
); and indeed removing the font cache and rebooting seems to solve
the problem ... for a couple of days !
Basically it seems to me that somehow the font cache gets corrupted
after a few days. Looking into more details on the net, I saw some a
blaming TeXniscope, Latexit, Lee (LaTeX Equation Editor) ... The fact
is I'm not using any of those, as I'm using TeXShop or TextMate as
front ends, including their own PDF viewer backed on the same PDF
rendering engine (as far as I know they are both using the PDF kit
Does someone really identified the cause of the cache corruption ? and
a way to systematically avoid it.
Thanks in advance for any help on the matter.
PS : I'm currently using pdflatex for rendering, would using eg.
xelatex be a solution ?
PPS : Sorry if you received this email twice : I have posted it 2 days
ago, and I still don't see it appear in the list... hence a second
(and last) trial to send it.
