While watching presentations (mostly made with
beamer) at my university I noticed, most people here use LaTeX to create there presentations which is really nice. (not just for the health of my eyes)
Getting more familiar with
pgfplots and other packages creating graphics I often notice, people try to create beautiful presentations but struggle inserting pictures, plots or schemes.
I tend to tell them that there is an easy way to create graphics and display them within their documents. Mostly they are totally stunned after seeing some examples. After showing some code, most of them refuse to go this way and continue to do workarounds and other hacky stuff to include there pictures.
This leads me to two questions in once.
- Why are tools like
pgfplotsstill this unknown even though most of the questions here turn out to be related to them?
- Any ideas on how to convince them to really try them out.
