TexMaths is a LibreOffice extension that provides a LaTeX equation editor.
LaTeX equations can be inserted as images (SVG or PNG formats) and the LaTeX code is saved into the image attribute for further editing.
To insert an equation into a document, type a LaTex math instruction in the text field of the TexMaths Equations window and then click on the LaTeX button.
TexMaths is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· This release features a complete rewrite of the main macro. Now, equation images are inserted as native drawings instead of gdi images. This fixes the issue where equations pasted from Writer to Impress or Draw were not editable. As a side effect, the poor SVG rendering quality that was only visible in Impress and Draw (in LibreOffice 3.5.x and 3.6.x) is now also visible in Writer, but this problem is fixed in LibreOffice 4.0.x. The LaTeX preamble is now stored locally into the document properties, thus each document can have a different preamble. A german translation was also added.
