Is it possible to call Bibtex files for citation in MS PowerPoint. Is there any such add-in or software to do this?

  • I am already using Beamer but being able to create bibliography using Bibtex file in PowerPoint would make my life much easier. I want to use PowerPoint because I will have more control over the pictures (resizing, locating,...etc) which I found to be sometimes very annoying and time consuming in Beamer. But, I also want to include all of the references I am using as a footnote in each slide in PowerPoint. Jul 17, 2013 at 5:03

  • Bibtex4Word add-in for Microsoft Word allows the citation of references and the insertion of a bibliography into your word document .doc, I have no idea if it can be extended to .ppt/x files. Aug 9, 2013 at 2:46

As far as I know is there no possibility to call BiBTeX in PowerPoint.

What you can try is to use a program like citavi or perhaps Menderly or ... If these programs are able to import a bibtex file you can use them to integrate your citations into Powerpoint. As far as I know you can use Citavi in PowerPoint.
