Font Encoding in a Postscript Document

Hello, This seems like it should be a pretty common problem, so I'm not sure what I'm missing. When I compile a document with the fontenc package ( T1 option) to postscript, the text doesn't display. Actually, the text does display if I also have mathptmx loaded. Likewise, if I have tipa loaded, any...

Re: pifont displays incorrect dingbat

I always see the "correct" output. And also after I ran the example with different compiling routes, I always get the correct output. You could compare the output by using another viewer like Sumatra PDF (which is preferable when working with TeXnicCenter). Thanks for putting me onto Suma...

Re: pifont displays incorrect dingbat

Did you try any other symbols? Thanks for you reply. I followed your advice, and tried the full symbol set. All display erroneously in Adobe Reader when I've built the file by selecting TeXnicCenter's LaTeX => PS => PDF option. The symbols, are similar but not identical. Compare the attached chart ...

Re: pifont displays incorrect dingbat

Hi, Thanks for replying. Each bit of information moves me closer to a solution. Do you mean that you can't spot a difference in the PDF files that I attached? If so, I've taken a screenshot of what I see in adobe acrobat at 600% resolution. You should see that the difference between the two characte...

Re: Wick Contractions in Text Mode Topic is solved

A partial solution to this problem is to load the xytree package as in the following code: \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{report} \usepackage{covington, xytree} \begin{document} \begin{example} \xytext{\xybarnode{Alfred}\xybarconnect[2][-](D,D){4} & \xybarnode{described} & \xybarnode{Bob}\xyba...

Wick Contractions in Text Mode Topic is solved

Hi all, I'm currently typesetting a linguistics paper. I'm looking for a way to draw 'linking lines' between two arguments in an example sentence in order to show that that they are co-referential. Something similar to the wick contractions provided by the simplewick package, though functioning in t...

Re: Typewriter Apostrophe Topic is solved

After many hours of searching for a solution I accidently stumbled across one while looking for something else.

Load the textcomp package. Use the command \textquotesingle.
