FYI, my preferred OS X LaTeX GUI front end--the freeware TeXShop (http://www.uoregon.edu/~koch/texshop/texshop.html) -- is most comfortable with .PDF graphics (it can handle .EPS, but it is easier to use .PDF graphics in-line). Since Stata for OS X can natively create .PDF as graphical output, it's as easy as falling off a log (although I've never figured out why one would want to do that).I work with PDFLaTeX for my word processing, which can only take .jpg, .pdf, .png, and .tif figure files as input. Thus the only overlap with the picture formats that Stata exports to is .png, which comes out too grainy for publication-quality use. My current work around is to export to Postscript, Distill to PDF, and then manually edit the PDF to strip out the white space, etc. I'd much prefer a one-step (or even a two-step) approach. Has anyone else found a quicker solution? Even better, when will Stata for Windows have a PDF translator like the Mac version does now? Thanks for any help, David Epstein
