It would be helpful if you could state the version of LaTeXiT you are  
In addition, please state the version of Mac OS X you are using.

At the very least, give a minimal example of what it is you are trying  
to typeset.

For LaTeXiT in particular, you should make sure to choose the proper  
e.g. if you are attempting to typeset something in the normal "text"  
mode, then by all means, select that tab.
Eqnarray, Display, and Inline are all intended for mathematical  
equations in that >exact< mode.

So if you want to typeset $e=mc^2$ choose the proper inline/display  
tab, but if you want to typeset "Energy is equal to the mass times the  
speed of light squared" then choose 'text'.
