 
Summary: Aligning Text in Diagrams Exported
by Mathematica: A Question about the
PostScript Infrastructure
Michael P. Barnett
Abstract: I produce many LATEX documents that contain
diagrams exported by MATHEMATICA graphics. Usu
ally, these contain text. Often, this is misaligned hor
izontally. I think that getting correct alignment needs
an understanding of PDF font encoding. This note de
scribes the problem in the hope of getting feedback.
1 Introduction
This note seeks advice from POSTSCRIPT experts
about certain details of font encoding. I need this in
formation to align builtup text expressions that mix
different fonts, in diagrams that are constructed by
MATHEMATICA graphics. I include these diagrams
in LATEX manuscripts on topics in the natural sci
ences, mathematics and the humanities. The text
is aligned by the TMG (text in MATHEMATICA)
package that I coded. Fig. 1 and nearly 30 similar
