comment How to use display equations with psfrag?
@DavidCarlisle: Ahhh, I see. I have never used \parbox so I am unfamiliar with how I would use it. I looked up the documentation and it seems that I need to know the width beforehand (i.e your 3cm), but how do I know the width of my expression before i have seen it? Is there a rule of thumb you use to make sure the parbox is big enough to contain the contents?

comment How to use display equations with psfrag?
@DavidCarlisle: Thanks for the suggestion. As noted in the question I have tried \displaystyle and it does compile correctly. However, the question is more general. Say that I want to include an equation that involves more complicated (and usually written on multiple lines) formatting, e.g. a \begin{cases} environment. I need pstool to be able to handle whatever I might put inside of a generic \begin{equation}...\end{equation}. Any suggestions?

comment Figure seems incorrectly scaled
@A.Ellett: I could set the width, but what I am really trying to understand is why in my document an image that is ~140mm wide is correctly sized when scale=1, but another image that is ~175mm wide (the one i mentioned above) is not correctly sized when scale=1. Both images are 500 dpi JPEGs, I see no difference between the two that should cause one to be so much larger than the other. This is my real confusion.

comment Figure seems incorrectly scaled
@Werner: If I set the scale=0.1 then it appears to be closer to the correct size (though I haven't measured exactly).

comment Simple way to place an array of symbols above a letter?
@egreg: Awesome! Thank you so much! One other question, if i replace the periods with other symbols, for example \triangle or \circ they are too large and overlap. Is there a way to shrink these symbols so they fit as well?

comment Simple way to place an array of symbols above a letter?
@azetina: I defined the following math operators: \DeclareMathOperator*{\specialz}{\mathit{Z}} \DeclareMathOperator*{\symz}{\overset{\gshtwo\gshone}{\specialz}} and then tried to use \sideset{}{_{lm}^n}\symz, but it puts the n way above the Z since it thinks the entire symbol is the operator. If instead I try \overset{\gshtwo\gshone}{\sideset{}{_{lm}^n}\specialz} then the superscript is in the right place but the dots are not centered over the Z, they're centered over the entire symbol including the sub and superscripts
