Tgif - Version 4.1 Patchlevel 11 Release Notes

Version 4.1 Patchlevel 11 Added Features/Bug Fixes
  1. Fix a bug with importing EPS file that doesn't have a preview bitmap. Thanks to Marlene Busch <> for pointing out the problem.

  2. To support LaTeX equations better, 3 new LaTeX equation symbol files "eq4.sym", "eq4-ps2epsi.sym", and "eq4-2x.sym" are included in this release.

    The only difference between "eq4.sym" and "eq4-ps2epsi.sym" is that "eq4.sym" uses "pstoepsi" and "eq4-ps2epsi.sym" uses ghostscript's "ps2epsi".

    The "eq4-2x.sym" uses the latest "pbmtoepsi" (which uses the new [ -scale value ] command line option) from "netpbm-20may1999" and the latest "pstoepsi" (which knows how to handle the [ -2x ] command line option) to run ghostscript at the 144dpi resolution for generating the preview bitmap. This makes LaTex equations looks good in both X and PS/EPS! Also, all 3 symbol files do not require "simple.tex" which was needed in the old LaTeX Equation package.

    To obtain the latest "pstoepsi" and "netpbm-20may1999", please visit <URL:>.

  3. Added ToggleEqAttrShown() under the Attribute Submenu of the Special Menu to toggle the "eq=" attribute for the LaTeX equation object. ToggleEqAttrShown() can also be accessed via the <Alt><Cntrl>7 keyboard shortcut.
