This is not a problem I've seen before, and naturally pops up while
I'm on the road preparing a conference presentation.
I am creating equations for a presentation and/or figures. Mac OS
10.5.6, TeXShop 2.26, LaTeXiT 1.16.1. In TeXShop you can select an
equation (or whatever) from the preview and drag it to the desktop or to
your presentation, creating a small pdf. In LaTeXiT you run your code
and drag the resulting equation to the desktop or your presentation or
I HAVE installed the font-cache-bug fix. (Several times, now...)
After not too terribly long a time, now, whether TeXShop or LaTeXiT,
characters in the output (not just stuff I drag out of either) start
disappearing (or sometimes replaced by exclamation points). Tends to
get worse the longer I wait before rebooting. Both in TeXShop's preview
and/or LaTeXiT -- once it starts in one I start seeing it in the other.
TeX is becoming unusable, which is catastrophic for me!
I am at a loss what is triggering the problem, and why I am seeing it
now (with a vengeance) but have never seen it before. Not much has
changed that I can think of.
Deleting the font caches/rebooting helps temporarily, but it comes back.
SOMETHING related to font display in pdf's is corrupted, perhaps some
cache that google hasn't told me about that isn't re-generated on
reboot, or something I am doing is corrupting them anew.
I'm becoming a bit desperate. I welcome suggestions! (Re-installing
TeXLive is not an option until I return home. Besides, I doubt that
would resolve a corrupted cache problem, if that's what it is.)
