 oreilly 2000-11-05 18:34:46 EST under ghostscript 5.50-1 and tetex-xdvi 1.0.6-11, xdvi does not display embedded postscript figures in latex documents correctly. specifically, bits of text in figures will not display sometimes, and then will show up randomly on other pages. figures are included using the following latex code: \usepackage [dvips]{graphicx} ... \centering\includegraphics[width=3in]{fig.figure.eps} this problem does not show up with earlier versions of ghostscript (e.g, 5.10) also, i can't seem to get the buttons to appear on the right hand side of the window, despite toggling using the x button. oreilly 2000-11-06 00:02:08 EST This bug should probably also be listed under tetex (package tetex-xdvi) -- it is really in the interaction between xdvi and gs. Jeff Johnson 2000-12-27 21:13:18 EST Can you supply a complete example that exhibits the problem? oreilly 2001-01-11 19:10:19 EST Here is a complete example that exhibits the problem. The first file is the .tex file, and the second is the .ps file for the included figure. Begin gsbug.tex: ----------------- \documentclass {article} \usepackage[dvips]{graphicx} \begin{document} This is a minimal test document for reproducing a bug in the interaction between gs (ghostscript) and xdvi in displaying postscript figures with text labels. This bug only appears with gs 5.50, not in 5.10. The bug is that text in the figure will not be displayed sometimes, and will appear incorrectly on other pages at other times. To see the bug, latex this file, then xdvi the .dvi file (I used version 22.05d-k that comes with redhat 6.2), and then flip back and forth between the pages. I find that the 2nd line of text does not appear on the first page, and then shows up on the second page. \centerline{\includegraphics[width=6in]{gsbug.fig.ps}} \newpage \centerline{\includegraphics[width=6in]{gsbug.fig.ps}} This is the second page. \end{document} ------------------- Begin gsbug.fig.ps: ------------------- %!PS-Adobe-2.0 EPSF-1.2 %%Creator: Randall O'Reilly %%DocumentFonts: Helvetica %%Pages: 1 %%BoundingBox: 50 70 260 155 %%EndComments %%Page: 1 1 0 0 0 setcolor 1 setlinewidth newpath 57 76 moveto 57 147 lineto 255 147 lineto 255 76 lineto closepath stroke /Helvetica findfont 12 scalefont setfont 60 120 moveto (this is some text to test) show 60 80 moveto (and some more) show showpage  Tim Waugh 2001-02-02 11:38:19 EST This appears to be the same as bug 19212, which is fixed. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 19212 ***
