Reinstall everything??
modern fonts
texmaker
texstudio
ghostscript
gsview
pstoedit
textext py and inx, editing them
imagemagick
miktex
bibtool
texlive
inkscape?
And yet without knowing if all he produced material will be rendered from paths, fills only, and without adding ridiculous amount of nodes where not needed?
Or knowing what caused the problem?
Mathematical formulae
Re: Mathematical formulae
Installed the same things except bibtool, texlive and texmaker on another machine.
Tried an example pasted from http://www.codecogs.com/latex/eqneditor.php.
Is this how it works when "it works like a charm"?
Please check if your extension produces such stuff.
Like lines there is not a tool that you can edit it with before you convert it to path.
And those simple "a" letters.
Are they messed up such?

Re: Mathematical formulae
I can write complex equations in a formula/equate document in Complete Office (similar to Open Office), save as PDF and import into a layer in Inkscape, ungroup and remove unwanted bounding boxes. Works well, but is tedious and timeconsuming. Could Inkscape developers incorporate an Equation editor similar to formula/equate to do this more efficiently?
If this can be done, I'm sure many Inkscape users, myself included, would appreciate it. ( Not keen to use LaTeX.)
Thanks in advance.

However, I'm having doubts that with the existing LaTeX extensions, anyone will bother to invent yet another system for this. It's highly complex, and a system already exists.
LaTeX is available, and it also seems to work (as far as I know, never needed to use it). Sometimes, we just need to learn new things, or use the alternative workflows we have found to work for us.

Something doesn't work?  Keeping an eye on the status bar can save you a lot of time!

Re: Mathematical formulae
Having recently looked at LaTex for the first time, I can understand how it would be a bummer to have to learn it. If you happen to know Python, you might want to take a swing at writing an extension yourself?
