I'm stymied. A report that compiled before now throws an error when I try to preview it (using psdvi) or compile it (using pdflatex). The error is "Class scrreport Error: undefined old font command '\sc'" and it is found in a bibliographic reference: {\sc Adamus, P.R., Clairain, E.J.,

I have a 37-page report and the pdf size is 7.3M because it includes 34 figures. Some of these figures are digital photographs (720x480dpi, .png), some are spatial maps produced by GRASS (.pdf), and some are lattice plots produced by R (large amounts of data display slowly, .pdf). Is there a

I goofed and put a table in a figure float. Can I directly convert it? If not I'll cut-and-past the table elsewhere, create a table float and put it in there. Must not have been sufficiently cafinated when I did this. TIA, Rich
