@mz2 I am now 1.0.15.

I have a version of my project with all `includegraphics` stripped out (and curly braces around `\input`). This gave me a long drop-down error message after import, and then crashed -- you will probably have the crash report.

I also have another version with the full `includegraphics` and this fails with a 255 error...

@mz2 Hey, it (sort of) works....

The caveat so far is that I got an error message about missing braces after `\input`. In fact, LaTeX does not require braces: `\input Planck.tex` is perfectly legal!

At present, the version that I sent you at least gets imported if I make that change.

However, my very carefully formatted tables (which actually use Plain TeX!) do not come out right.
Moreover, when I restore the inclusion of figures through `\includegraphics`, I get an error message.

Getting there...

@mz2 Hi- I did send a (failing) example a few days ago...

Hi,

The latest update is slightly better -- I almost understand what the open dialog requires. Am I meant to be selecting the actual folder containing the files, or individual files? Does it matter that the imported files are often in sub- or sub-sub-directories? (Also, "grant access" is not the right way to describe what's happening; this makes it sounds like a permission issue.)

Even worse, much of the time, it still just fails without even getting to that dialog. The difference appears not to be reproducible -- sometimes the same file will entirely fail, sometimes it will give the dialog. If I try it with the sample set of files I sent by email to support@manuscriptsapp.com, once it gave me the open dialog. (And when I do get the dialog I still can't get it to work.) But the second time it just beeped and failed.

Yours,

Andrew

OK, will do, later on today. Note that I've updated my question to describe two different failure modes.

Hi,

As an astrophysicist, I write my papers entirely in LaTeX for journals like Astrophysical Journal, Physical Review, Astronomy and Astrophysics, etc. I have attempted to import some of my latex files into manuscripts, and it has never worked.

In general, these are complicated files using lots of packages and \including or \inputting many external files. With some, it just ends with no change to the manuscripts document (i.e., nothing imported), and with other documents it explicitly gives me an open dialog with the cryptic message "Looks like the LaTeX file you are importing references" which is either incomplete or bad English...

Is this user error in my part, or is manuscripts incapable of dealing with such files?

Andrew
