  • 'OOoLatexEquation' now is abandoned and replaced by 'TexMaths'

OOoLatexEquation is an OpenOffice macro for manipulating LaTeX equations. It lets you create equations and insert them into OOWriter and OOImpress documents as PNG, EPS, and EMF images; the LateX characteristics are saved in the image attributes. The equations are created and edited through an intuitive GUI. OOoLatexEquation supports an inline mode as in TexPoint which expands simple latex code into appropriate characters using specific TrueType fonts.
