LaTeXit 1.16.1 stalling upon launch

    Hi everyone -- LaTeXit has stopped working on my OS X for an unknown reason. I don't know if it was caused by recent software updates or something else, but I tried to run LaTeXiT and the icon would pop up on the dock and eventually stop bouncing, but it wouldn't run (no highlighted dot beneath the icon). The program was working fine as recently as a month ago, and I haven't changed my system since then.

    (I may have upgraded to MacTex 2008 during this time, but even when I set my TeX distribution back to MacTex 2007 I am unable to launch LaTeXiT.)

    Below is the Problem Report.

    Thanks for the note, but LyX has a somewhat different purpose. I use LaTeXiT not as a document editor, but to quickly produce output that one can paste into other documents (e.g. Keynote, etc.). (I use TextMate for my TeX editing and prefer this over the LyX environment.)

    I found this tip in the online help:

    If this doesn't help, I'd suggest to switch back to MacTeX 08 and then use the TeX Life Utility to update all packages.

    My bad. I misread your post. That said, LaTeXiT has no problems here.
