Problems with \ in latex
« on: February 10, 2016, 01:47:22 PM »
I cannot use any command like $\alpha$ or $\infty$ in the LateX formulas with WinFig. It just gives me alpha or infty  (in italics) like if the symbol \ had been disregarded.

I do get the correct result for $x^2$, for example.

Any clue of what can be happening? Thank you!

It's working ok with Release 6.0 final. Does the error occur when viewing formulas in WinFIG or when exporting to LaTeX and creating dvi or PDF? Which version of WinFIG are you using? There was a bug regarding slashes fixed in 6.0b2: "escaping \ to \\ like in Xfig"
