Import latex equations in libreoffice/word
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 12, 2014
I know that question has been asked many times, but thinks change and it's hard to find "the solution".
I wrote a 10 pages document with Lyx/Latex, with many equations, for somebody's thesis written in word format.
Converting to html then importing in writer/word works for text, but not for equations. OOolatex or Texmaths give images, not real equations.
Does anybody have a solution to convert .tex to .doc, or just equations?
A solution on linux would be fine, but I take any advice.
I haven't tried latex2word (word extension to import latex documents) yet because I don't have word, but I'll try soon.
Thanks by advance
Please excuse my english, I am french.

sun word converter for OpenDocument file released
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 1, 2007
Hi, to my delight Sun has released a file converter for Open documents in M$Office.
It works in the "open file" and "save as" dialogs in most M$ Office formats.
Just to clarify, it's for windows, but you will be able to use your Open/Star office files in M$Windows.
Here's the link, from Linux Today Magazine....http://www.linuxtoday.com/infrastruc...7073100835RVDT

Linux RedHat 9.0 PDF to Word converter
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 22, 2004
As I am a Linux novice, I am trying to find out if anyone knows of any free Linux PDF to Word file converters. I have tried the ones available for Windows (on a Windows PC naturally), and whilst for the most part all is OK, there is a problem with a number of images that are losr during the conversion process. These images tend to occupy the full width of the page. Smaller images in the PDF file, that are probably 1/5 the width of the page, have come across fine.
I am looking at Linux to see if there are any tools that may help me.
PS. I am an absolute novice, so if you could probably detailed steps on installing any application, that would be much appreciated. :-)
Mathtype, MS Word, and LibreOffice problems
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 26, 2012
I am running Lubuntu 12.04 on my netbook, and currently use LaTeX for math typesetting. However, I am trying to obtain a job authoring solution guides for math textbooks, and the company I would be working for uses MathType exclusively. I can type in LaTeX, then import into MathType - but this company also requires the solutions to be in .doc format.
SO, I really need to be able to use MS Word, and Excel on my linux machine. Also, I cannot afford any cost of product keys for MS Word, Excel, etc.
My contact rep for the company said to try downloading MS Office 2010 Starter (and sent me a link for that) and use that. I did, but Wine could not open the file at all. Otherwise, I will have to paste MathType equations into something like LibreOffice as an OLE - and in that case, the company cannot edit said equations, if need be.
So, any help/solution to this problem will be greatly aprecaited. Thanks,
MS Word document (*.doc) that is a table confuses Libreoffice writer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 26, 2014
One of my clients sent me a MS Word document (*.doc) that only contains a table (13 inches wide by 50+ inches long, no apparent page breaks). File was attached to an e-mail received with Evolution 3.2.3. I opened the attachment with Libreoffice Writer (22.214.171.124). The document opened and appeared to be correct, but then I found that pp 2-29 were all the same. I used the Preview in Web Browser, and found that there were 11 distinct papges, but there appeared to be no way to deal with the issue. I e-mailed the person who sent it to me and he confirmed 9 pages. I sent the document to one of my webmails, rebooted PC into Win XP Pro SP3, retrieved the document, and opened it with MS Word 2007. Nine pages, legal size. I changed the page size to letter, saved it, and printed it out so I would have a copy for a meeting I need to attend. I went back into Ubuntu and pulled the document from the ntfs partition with Libreoffice writer, and it is still a mess. Quite frankly, I I had not kep
How to make LibreOffice tracked changes appear in Microsoft word
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 7, 2011
A colleague sent me a .doc file which I opened with LibreOffice and immediately converted to .otf. I tracked my changes and made comments on the file. When I save the file in the .doc format and open it using Microsoft word, my comments remain, and my changes and edits are there, but they are not tracked (highlighted, striked-through, differently-coloured, etc.) Is there a way for my friend to view my tracked changes that I made in LibreOffice using her Microsoft word?
Thanks in advance
LibreOffice Writer vs. MS Word. editable fields.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2012
I have downloaded a *.doc form to apply for membership of the NMRA - (yes, I know, I am a total full-on geek) but I am unable to enter text in the fields (name/address/credit card... etc.) using Writer. The form is read-only password protected (password not supplied). I'm assuming this would work fine in MS Word, not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if the password protection works differently between the two apps...
R: Function to export currently active R plot to Powerpoint/Word/LibreOffice
location: linuxexchange.com - date: July 17, 2015
Currently I always export my R graphs to Powerpoint in vector format using the excellent ReporteRs package, as in
myplot = function() print(qplot(Sepal.Length, Petal.Length, data = iris, color = Species, size = Petal.Width, alpha = I(0.7)))
doc = pptx()
doc = addSlide(doc, slide.layout = "Blank")
doc = addPlot( doc, myplot, vector.graphic = TRUE, fontname="Arial",
offx = 0.1*dim(doc)$slide.dim["width"], offy = 0.05*dim(doc)$slide.dim["height"],
width = 0.8*dim(doc)$slide.dim["width"], height = 0.9*dim(doc)$slide.dim["height"])
writeDoc( doc, "plot.pptx")
What I find inconvenient in this workflow is that I now have to wrap my plot commands in a function (with print() for lattice or ggplot2 plots, or just return(plot()) for base R plots), and that I don't like having to manually specify the offsets and size (I usually prefer to just get a nearly page filling, centered graph in my slide). I was just wondering if instead it wouldn't
