  1. Oct 9, 2005 #1
    Hi,

    I would like to know how to insert Latex equations in Microsoft Powerpoint slides. Does someone know an equation converter from latex to img?

    Thanks,

    A fallback might be the equation editor that is built into Powerpoint.

    Another PowerPoint plug-in for inserting Latex equations is IguanaTex:

    Unlike TexPoint, you can download it for free.

    There is a shortcut that has saved me a lot of time and grief. No need to install anything.
    I view the output of the LaTeX in pdf, using Acrobat Reader. Then I highlight the equation, save it to the clipboard, go to Powerpoint and paste it!!

    I just started using IguanaTex (for Powerpoint 2000, 2003, and 2007).
    One advantage of it (and TexPoint and
    http://users.ecs.soton.ac.uk/srg/softwaretools/presentation/TeX4PPT/ for 2003 and
    http://sites.google.com/site/tex4ppt/ [Broken] for 2007)
    over the online image-renderers [which have been very useful!]
    is that you can edit the original LaTeX and update the rendered-image.

    I believe the LaTeX code is embedded in the image file,
    which is extracted by these offline tools.
