if u use Linux OS then try TEXMACS
it's a graphical formula editor as OOo maths but with a lot of capacities.

it's easier than OOo maths i think 'cause u don't have to open a window to access symbols : it's boring in OOo to have to catch them with >Tools>symbol

in TextMacs u write and click directly on a permanent list without opening and closing windows

But may be i have't found the way to do it a simple way........if u have pleaaaase give me !

you may just enter %<greek name> for a symbol like %sigma for the lowercase sigma and %SIGMA for uppercase.

LaTeX isn't a window s like program for writing documents, you write something like a program and "compile" it into dvi, ps or pdf


It's a big disadvantage when you want a bit of formulas and a lot of text, isn't it?


I don't think so; I study Philosophy and I've not so much formulas, but Latex it's better (with respect to Word for istance) also on simple layout and formatting text.
No idea on OO.

I loved latex but had to give up on it because way too many journals in my field want to see RTF and Microsoft word copy. After spending a few weeks trying to get good RTF output out of LaTeX, I gave up on it and switched to OpenOffice.

Hi. Does anybody know of any real good online tutorials/howto's for LaTeX? I would also be interested if anybody know of any LaTeX forums where one could get answers to questions like "why doesn't this thing compile?", and "what does this error message mean?". If not, does anybody know how to fix this error?( I am using pdflatex in Unix):

Runaway argument?
{blahblahblah \ETC.
! File ended while scanning use of \@footnotetext.

The TEX file doesn't end where the error message says it does, it goes on an and on. But the output pdf document ends before the footnote is printed.

I will be grateful for any answer.

And yes, I'm a Latex nubie. Laughing

I almost forgot it!
If you want a graphical interfase for latex (much much better than the expensive scientific word, and for free!), you could try with lyx
www.lyx.org for the original linux and mac proyect
http://www.home.zonnet.nl/rareitsma/lyx/ for the windows port
I use OOo for almost everything, except documents with great number of equations and/or graphics. For this, latex is still better.

Idea
As every body knows Psfrag does NOT exist for pdfLatex files but you may export from OOdraw, nice pictures with a lot of OOmath formulae written on them !!! .... Remember that Mayuradraw is not free anymore and has a limited number of avalaible fonts.
E.K.

A simple but complete tool to write Latex formulas in Openoffice:

OOLatexMacro

(I've posted this message elsewhere, but this is the first forum that appears in Google, so I'm posting duplicate. I hope this helps OO users)

Hi, I tried this Macro, but I am getting an error regarding some libraries: It says that
/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/libgcc_s.so.1:version GCC_3.3 not found (required by
/usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.4/libstdc++.so.6)
Any idea how to fix this problem?

Thank you

Yes, I do
I fixed it by copying libgcc_s.so.1 from /usr/lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.4/ to
/opt/OpenOffice.org/program/

Hi !

Very strange ! What is your linux distribution ? I think that's a problem with OOo's build.
I know that OOo from Ubuntu has problem with the macro...

My man, I was a LaTeX n00b as well. It's really not too bad. Here is the tutorial I learned off of: http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english/lshort.pdf
