sorry I realized I was being perhaps cryptic. specifically: \usepackage[no-math]{mathspec} in my preamble seems to make instant preview stop functioning. I am using xetex, and I have tried many combinations of settings, but it all seems to boil down to this line. I want to be able to set the font for math. Perhaps another package for this exists? In a possible related vein, I also noticed that adding the following to my preamble also is breaking instant preview: -------- \newtheoremstyle{mytheorem} %hnamei {\topsep}% Space above {\topsep}% Space below {\ttfamily} % hBody fonti {} % hIndent amounti1 {\ttfamily} % hTheorem head fonti {:} % hPunctuation after theorem headi {.5em} % hSpace after theorem headi2 {} % hTheorem head spec (can be left empty, meaning â€˜normalâ€™)i \theoremstyle{mytheorem} % this should set the current theorem style to mytheorem? \newtheorem{mytheorem}{My Theorems} %this loads the new theorem style and uses "My Theorems" as its heading %\newtheorem{thm}{Theorem} ------------------ These may or may not be related. They work (that is to say act to break) independently of each other.
