You'll probably have to manually change the typeset command. Right  
now it does a parsing of the log file (well, the output to be exact).  
You really want to see the entire log file, or just some particular  
parts of it that are currently not showing up?

You'll again probably have to modify the typeset command (perhaps  
just create one of your own from scratch, that meets your needs).  
Basically you would just use the "open" command, and then if you  
provide it with a "dvi" file it would open with whatever default app  
handles those files in your system (or you could specify it via "open  
-a" I  think. Which dvi-previewer did you have in mind?

Hm, I believe we were thinking of allowing more customization of the  
output window. This window is used across many commands and  
languages, and there is a common css file for it. I think Soryu knows  
more about this though.
