During several attempts at installing on a Mac, I received an error message indicating that there was a problem with the installation of texlive.

The message included:

/Applications/MacKichan/install-tlnet/install-tl: errors in installation reported above,
/Applications/MacKichan/install-tlnet/install-tl:exiting with bad status.

I use SWP for several years, almost from the start. Each newer version of the SWP was at least as good as the previous one, and most importantly - it was sufficiently compatible with the previous version. Now, for the first time I am completely disappointed with the new version of SWP 6.0, 6.01 and 6.02, because now even a very simple LaTeX files are not possible to import without errors.

I just installed SNB 6.0.2.
I can now use Import LateX to open files created in SN 5.5.
However, there are some minor formatting bugs.
Parentheses and boxes are not automatically expanded to contain their contents, as in the original files.

The plotting bugs I mentioned previously are still present.
When I open plot properties for a Plot 2D Rectangular graph, I cannot view the original plotted expression, and when I try to drag in a second expression, the program crashes.
