 +  - Open xfig!
 +  - Draw your figure.
 +  - Click on the big T to allow you to enter text on the figure.
 +  - At the bottom of the window is a box that says "Text Flags hidden=off"​. Click that and change "​Special Flag" from Normal to Special. Click Set.
 +  - Enter your LaTeX command in dollar signs, e.g., $\int f(x) dx$.
 +  - Save your file.
 +  - Click the file menu and choose Export.
 +  - From the Export dialogue box choose "​Combined PS/LaTeX (both parts)",​ and click Export.
 +  - You should now have 3 files: (a) myfile.fig (b) myfile.pstex (c) myfile.pstex_t
 +      (a) The .fig file is your original xfig file.
 +      (b) The .pstex is the figure as an encapsulated postscript (I think its .eps).
 +      (c) The .pstex_t file is the one which you include in your LaTeX file.
