1 TexPoint A LaTeX Add-in for Powerpoint version 3.0 George Necula and Andreas Glatz

2 What is TexPoint TexPoint is a Powerpoint add-in that allows easy use of Latex symbols and formulas in Powerpoint presentation See for details on how to use and install TexPoint.http://texpoint.necula.org You can view this presentation even without having TexPoint installed –However, some font tables will be wrong if you do not have the AMS fonts installed

3 Usage Usage: TexPoint can be used in inline or display mode Inline usage: –You write \alpha_0 \otimes \beta_{\approx1} \rightarrow^\alpha \Gamma –Press ALT-X-X and it turns into 01 –Or you write \sum^n_{i=1} i^2 = x \and \forall y. y \geq 5 \implies \exists x. x \leq y –Press ALT-X-X and it turns into n i=1 i 2 = x y. y 5 x. x y Display usage –You press ALT-X-D and you are prompted to edit standard Latex source for a display –Once you have a display you can double click on it, or you can right- click on it. Try it on the display below:

4 More About Inline Mode You can do a lot of formatting without leaving the keyboard –E.g. \font{Arial}{\bf{a^{\underline{bc}}}} –Turns into a bc You can define per-presentation initialization macros with arguments: –E.g. \newcommand{and}{0}{\wedge} –E.g. \newcommand{type}{3}{#1 \vdash #2 : #3} –E.g. \newcommand{union}{0}{\fontchr{Symbol}{201}} You have access to almost all symbol macros that AMS Latex defines The macro arguments preserve their font style –E.g. \type{}{bold}{a font} expands to ` bold : a font

5 More About Display Mode You can do anything that Latex can do Displays can be colored (using color Latex commands)... or can be made to blend on the slide Displays can be processed as usual bitmaps (size, position, brightness, contrast) and in addition their Latex source can be changed. They can be copied and pasted even in other presentations since their Latex source is embedded in them.
