[Tex/LaTex] LaTeXiT does not render anymore


I have a weird problem with LaTeXiT 2.8.0 on MAC 10.11.5

It isn't rendering anymore. Even a simple \alpha isn't shown although there is no error message. I tried all different modes like Align, Display, Inline, Text and even Auto.

Rendering doesn't work

Drag and drop my old formulas from the built-in bibliography will work, formulas are rendered correctly, but pressing "LaTeX it!" button will dismiss the content without any error messages.

Can anyone help me, please?

After flailing around with this problem, I have discovered that you must first follow the instructions referenced on the "Upgrading for El Capitan" page: upgrade LaTeXit to 2.7.5, and then open the "Preferences/Typesetting" pane and clicking the "Reset..." button. This finds the locations for the installed pdflatex and Ghostscript.

However, there is one more step needed. The default Ghostscript call is listed as:


if you replace this with:


the problem is solved.
