[texpoint-users] [Authors] lot of things do not work!

  The inline mode does not support the \sqrt because this requires more
complex character positioning than what Powerpoint can support. Also the
inline mode does not support overlapping characters. 


 In order to help me figure out what is the problem with your display mode
setup, please open Powerpoint and send me the contents of the dialog box

Subject: [Authors] lot of things do not work!


I used a lot TexPoint in the past, and now we just purchased 2 new licenses
(one installed in XP and one in Vista), installed the last version, and a
lot of things do not work:

1) For inline editing, works fine for trivial things like \alpha, but then 
other simple things like \sqrt{2}, sends an error that the macro for \sqrt
is not defined. Is the inline so limited?

2) Now the more serious issue, everything outside the inline doesn't work.
When I use the latex and then "make display", I get the following:

"Tex2Bmp: Error while running <dvisp>"

and then the following log:

Both installations in both computers have the same errors.

I had no problems with TexPoint in the past, it is great, but now that we
purchased the new version, doesn't work :-)
