Bold Fonts When Saving a Table to TeX

Postby jsm » Mon Jan 14, 2019 11:34 am

Good afternoon,

In saving some tables to TeX, I encountered a bug.

In particular, I created a table that had certain (statistically significant) numbers in bold font. When I saved this table to TeX, EViews used "\textbf" with the numbers that were between dollar signs (i.e. in math mode): e.g. "&\multicolumn{1}{r}{\textbf{\fontsize{8pt}{1pt}\selectfont $-0.465$}}".

However with numbers between dollar signs, "\textbf" does not work in LaTeX. Instead "\mathbf" should be used between the dollar signs: e.g. "&\multicolumn{1}{r}{\fontsize{8pt}{1pt}\selectfont $\mathbf{-0.465}$}".

Can this issue be fixed?

Thanks,

JS

We can't simply replace "\textbf" with "\mathbf" but we are working on a fix. It should be available in the next patch.
