Math formulas Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hello,

I have OGSketcher for Mac. I need to use math formulas on my graphs.
I can create them "manually" grouping text fields, but I cannot find all necessary greek letters in eg. symbol font.
I tried Latexit but I do not know how to import ready formulas (pdfs, eps, tif, jpg or png) into OGSketcher document.

Regards,

krawcm
 
Ι have found a way to get greek chars:

System Preferences/Language&Text/Input sources and mark Greek polytonic

It's better than nothing, but I would prefer to import ready and nice latexit formulas :)

My quick test shows no way of pasting in an image directly. Perhaps I am also missing something.

A suggestion otherwise is to save your completed sketch as an image absent the labels that you want to make in Greek or math font. Copy that image in to a canvas or drawing app, use LaTeXiT to generate your Greek or equations, and then paste in the Greek or equations on the canvas/drawing.

Great idea. Adobe Illustrator did the job. I saved to eps (in OmniGS), opened with AI, imported Latexit generated formula and saved to eps. Now I can include it in my Latex doc.
Thanks.

FWIW and AFAIK, eps with LaTeX on a Mac is a depreciated if not completely unsupported choice for graphics format, with PDF now being preferred.

I am using latex-dvips-acrobat. Just got used to it (for more than 10 years worked on Slackware with latex). latex does not accept pdfs. Or maybe I do not know which package to load.

This depends on what system and setup you are using. Assuming you are on a Mac, try these links for further information. In a nutshell ... pdflatex is what you want.
