Use TeXShop as a PDF manipulation tool
Authored by: ateles on Aug 14, '03 11:17:58AM

Yeah, these new editing capabilities of TeXShop really rule! Although I prefer PDF as the format I ran into some trouble when dragging PDF cutouts into Keynote and then exporting to PowerPoint (for some reason PowerPoint doesn't deal very well with PDF's). But since you can select the export file type, that is easily fixed. Now we need Texshop to be able to produce RTF's from TeX files to enable sharing and edition of documents for non LaTeX or TeX users (i.e. Word people). Has anybody run into anything that works in this area?

LaTeX2rtf

latex2rtf (also available as a Fink package).

And yes, TeXShop is a great program. I've used LaTeX on and off since 1991, and this is the best integration of writing and previewing LaTeX documents I've seen. The drag-and-drop of selected areas of PDFs is killer.

Use TeXShop as a PDF manipulation tool
Authored by: ianstanley on Jan 16, '04 11:46:49AM

As I am normally writing long or complex reports in TeXShop then the last thing I need is some windows user editing my nice report and forwarding a word document to the intended recipient messing up the format, content and quality.

I have yet to find a use for such an export. However, a built in option to do the reverse would be handy.

;)
