Question on \setkomafont{}{}

From the KOMA-script doc I see that I can use the \setkomafont{element}{command} directive to change the typeface for specific document elements. Rather than the san-serif font for the title and section heads, I prefer to use the default body text typeface of Palatino-Roman. I added to the

Wrong placement with EPS graphics in pdflatex

2009-04-18 Thread Thomas Steffen
Hi All I noticed recently that I a lot of EPS graphics end up in the wrong place with the pdflatex backend. I guess it has to do with the bounding box, and somehow it is wrongly set during the conversion process. Then the picture ends up in the wrong place, or it is (partially) invisible if
