LaTeXiT overview

LaTeXiT is a small utility that allows you to quickly typeset LaTeX equations, without bothering with file creation, preambles, and so on. The PDF image obtained can then be exported by drag'n drop to any application supporting it. This is very useful to insert equations in presentations made with Keynote or Powerpoint. LaTeXiT also features an application service, so that you can type and transform equations directly in most text editors (Pages, Nisus Writer Express, TextEdit...).

Features
  • Generated PDFs can be reopened (even with copy/paste) to be modified
  • LinkBack support
  • Syntax colouring and auto-completion of LaTeX keywords
  • Smart LaTeX errors manager
  • LaTeX palettes
  • Automatic history and library management
  • Included application service
  • Automator support
  • Several export formats (PDF, EPS, TIFF, PNG...)

LaTeXiT is compatible with the most popular versions of OS X. It can be deployed on almost any machine, even the "old" machines in laboratories that will still be used for years. This is not a sacrifice, the LaTeXiT code is optimized: most recent APIs are used if available, and old ones are used if not.

What’s new in version 2.16.6

  • Open *.tikz files as *.tex files;
  • fixed context menu preventing the selection of SVG even if it is available through pdftocairo.

This application is indispensable for me to create equations to lecture notes for science and engineering courses. It supports LinkBack. This gives a great way to embed an equation in to a document and have it "active" for immediate update when you need to make a change. For those who need place to put the equations, as noted in earlier reviews, OmniGraffle supports LinkBack. So does Curio. Forget MathML ... Learn LaTeX and use LaTeXiT!

Wonderful program if you know (or can take 10 minutes to learn) enough LaTeX to create the equations you need, but don't need/want the full rigamarole of an entire LaTeX document. Unfortunately, the link appears to be dead, http://pierre.chachatelier.fr/latexit/ reports cannot be found. Hopefully, just a temporary blip.

In version 2.7.4 and 10.9.5 (Mavericks) there is no display in the upper part anymore after performing 'LateXiT'! In 2.7.3 there are no problems...
