odd behavior when converting to pdf

Hello,

I am a new user of latex and MikTeX, so if this isn't the correct place to post this question please tell me
where it should be posted.

I noticed something odd last night.

In my latex file I have the line:

\item Use a dictionary file containing 100 entries.

When I run pdflatex on the document and look at the resulting pdf file, I see:

Use a dictionary le containing 100 entries.

What happened to the "fi" part of file?

Trouble with bounding box in includegraphics for EPS file

Hi,
I have installed MiKTeX 2.9 on my PC under Windows 7.
I want to include part of a Postscript figure in a LaTeX document, using the graphicx package.
This is normally done using the bb= option in includegraphics, but doesn't seem to work in my implementation.
I simplified the tex file to its bare bones
\documentclass[12pt,preprint]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\includegraphics[bb=260 0 489 200,clip,width=\textwidth]
                      {4year_JMCv3_galnorm_lat.eps}
\end{figure}
\end{document}
I compile using XeLaTeX.
Instead of starting at 260 along X in the image the figure starts at 0, and keeps the first (489-260)=229
points of the image.
That is bb=x1 y1 x2 y2 always turns into bb=0 0 x2-x1 y2-y1
I gave the same file and image to a friend who has a different LaTeX package (on Mac) and it worked fine for him.
I must have something wrong in my installation, but I can't figure out what it is.
Did anybody see that behaviour?
Thanks for your help,
Jean

Bug in getmap?

Hi,

i just installed MiKTeX beside TeXLive to test my getmap package.
With some weird results. First it tries to use runscript.tlu from 
TeXLive to run osmimage. After goggleing, i learned that there should be 
a copy of runtexlua.exe renamed to osmimage.exe in \miktex\bin\
When i do that manually, i get:

osmimage: The Lua script is not registered.
osmimage: Data: osmimage

Does that mean that you can't manually install a lua script in MiKTeX?
In TeXLive it's possible with renaming runscript.exe -> osmimage.exe

Or just a bad interaction between my MiKTeX and TeXLive? Can somebody 
with a clean MiKTeX installation please test (with -shell-escape):

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[overwrite]{getmap}
\begin{document}
\section{Example}
Do you want to visit the office of Dante e.V.? Here we go:

\getmap{Bergheimer Strasse 110A, 69115 Heidelberg, Germany}%
\includegraphics[width=10cm]{osmimage}
\end{document}

problem after recent update (problem using auto-pst-pdf)

After a recent update of Miktex, files with .eps graphics that used to
compile with auto-pst-pdf package, do not compile anymore if they contain
more than one pdf graphics. It looks like the filename-pics.pdf generated
by auto-pst-pdf can contain only one page and other pages corresponding the
rest of the graphics do not get generated. The latex-dvips-ps2pdf path
works fine.

Thanks

log-files while building formats

Hello,

I need to see log-file after building formats (initexmf --dump). During 
compiling format files, initexmf says about creating logs, however I 
cannot find it. I thought that these logs are deleted when initexmf 
finishes. I paused initexmf and sought logs througout all hard disks - 
nothing *.log (dealing with tex) were found.
I also tried redirect output with something like initexmf --dump 
 >>a.log, but the file a.log remained empty.
Does anybody know how to get these logs?

Thanks in advance

Multiple hyphenations

Hello,
I need to have several hyphenation patterns for the same language. Of 
course, It is possible to rebuild format file each time when the other 
pattern is needed. However, I hope that there should be purer way. For 
example, is it possible to create other Babel language, which is the 
exact copy of existing one, but with different name? If so, I could 
switch between these languages in order to use the proper hyphen pattern.

Thanks everybody in advance.
