    Is there a possibility to use tables, images and other formated objects in Ulysses 2.0 by using the Latex Exporter? Images were displayed by using the PDF-Exporter, but not by using Latex.

    Not sure what you mean by "Images were displayed by using the PDF-Exporter".

    I generally keep tables and other objects separate, in a folder where my LaTeX-output goes. Of course, I call them by the \input{...} command which is included in the Ulysses-file.

    Generally, you'll have to check how tables and images come out anyway in LaTeX, so I find it most practical to keep and edit them outside of the Ulysses-environment in TeXshop.

    Images and footnotes can be insert by using the notes and the following tags [[imagename]] and {{footnote}}, if I export with the PDF-Exporter the images will be included, if I use the Latex-Exported they will not.
    Many thanks for your hints. This include command could be very useful. But Ulysses can include images by using the command [[image]], why they doesn't appear in Latex-Export-Mode?

    I only know so much LaTeX as I need to... but I believe that the answer is simpels (uk idiom). The exported LaTeX-file is a pre-processed file, or source file, to be run through the TeX-machine. Pictures as such cannot be part of this, as they require a special graphics input routine. For example, I have the following picture included:

    \noindent\begin{table}[htbp]\begin{center}\includegraphics[scale=0.6]{PICTURE.pdf}\label{RaI}\caption{MY PICTURE}\end{center}\end{table}

    The graphics command tells the engine what to do (thanks to the graphics and float packages, which are standard in most installations), but the picture remains outside of the main file.
    To include the picture in the LaTeX-file would not work, hence Ulysses doesn't export it (I think, but Michael will be able to tell you whether I'm talking out of the back of my neck or not).

    Hope this helps.

    Well, the LaTeX exporter is able to pick graphics from the notes, save them to the destination folder and put a

    \includegraphics{PICTURE}

    into the exported document. But you have to define the start and end tags ('[[' and ']]') as an inline style and set this inline style in the export setting accordingly. Footnotes work in the same manner.

    Ah well, that is basically the same, the difference being that it is possible to keep all the graphics in Ulysses, too. Yet it is handy to have everything grouped together. Ulysses keeps surprising me.
    Ultimately, though, it makes no difference, as the TeX-engine has to process it separately.
