Subject: LaTeX formulas in OpenOffice
Hi,
A main disadvantage of using OpenOffice vs. LaTeX for write-ups or presentation was the ugliness of the built-in OpenOffice formulas. There is now a fix for that in the form of a macro that allows direct inclusion of LaTeX formulas in OpenOffice. It calls latex including the formulas as png or eps into the document.
I tested this, its great and it works at DESY. Your machine has to see /user and ~/bin is in your PATH.
Then:
cp /user/gbrandt/epstool-3.07/bin/epstool ~/bin
cp /user/gbrandt/OOoLatex-2.2-rc5/bin/OOoLatex ~/bin
/user/gbrandt/OOoLatex-2.2-rc5/macro/script.xlb
"Crtl-M"
) to the macro "OOoLatex/OOoLatexEquation/main" from the menu Tools>Macro>Assign>Keyboard.
Now, to insert a latex formula type Ctrl-M,
the dialog should be self-explanatory. To edit the formula again, select its picture and type Ctrl-M
again.
the original site for the macro is:
Have Fun,
Gerhard
