Hi, Herb.

Gary has indeed solved the problem (which is that I could not import LaTeXiT output into Illustrator CS6 in El Capitan.) Gary suggested I send him a screenshot, which I did, off list to conserve bandwidth. I don’t know what the issue is, but here is Gary’s solution. 

1. Export from LaTeXiT as PDF with outlined fonts.

2. Open in Illustrator. The image is fine, but it has a border.

3. From the View menu in Illustrator, choose “Hide Artboards”. That removes the border.

Gary suggested dragging the output from LaTeXiT to Illustrator. I can do this if I drag to the Finder’s desktop, and then to Illustrator, but this image cannot be edited as far as I can see.

I don’t know if this will help anyone else, but it might; and in any case, I want to thank Gary publicly. Thank you, Gary!
