But there is something that is badly broken. If I generate in LaTeXiT some equation to add to an illustration, Illustrator says that it cannot find the fonts, and completely trashes the equation. I have never had this problem before.

If I use “PDF with outlined fonts” in the “General > Export format of images:” settings, it works perfectly (with is with Illustrator CC 2015, but I expect it will be the same in CS 5).
