transparent background in pdf images in TeXShop

mmurray
As LaTeXit doesn't seem to be working in Leopard I am using TeXShop to  
create symbols to drag into Omnigraffle. No matter what settings I  
make in preferences the result doesn't seem to have a transparent  
background. I can cheat by pushing the image into the background in  
Omnigraffle. Strangely if I open the TeXShop created pdf in Preview  
and select the symbol the result has a transparent background in  
Omnigraffle.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong.  The OS and all  
applications are up to date.

I guess I should check the pref's are saving.  Can anyone tell me what  
the correct pref's should be and which settings they are when I do  
`defaults read texshop' ?

Thanks - Michael

Howdy,

At least temporarily downgrade LaTeXiT to v1.14.3 at <http://ktd.club.fr/programmation/latexit_en.php 
 >. That version works fine.

Good Luck,

Sorry I hadn't sent the last two messages to the list.

To summarise:

As Herbert and David suggest 1.14.3 works fine.  My problem of a  
slight clipping of the pdf on the RH edge occurs only if you chose to  
latexit as eqnarray. Try, for example, a `w' without quotes and  
latexit as eqnarray and as displayed.

Thanks - Michael
