Is there a way to compile a document with pdflatex and render all displaymath into graphics which are then included in the document instead of the equation code itself?

Analogous to what you can do with tikz graphics and the externalize library?

  • I write in tex but my supervisor loves word. I do not want to mess with tex4ht right now so I thought if I could render the math in pictures the equations won't get screwed up when I convert from pdf to docx (and they do get messed up right now) – Martin H Oct 31 '13 at 12:07

    Why can't the proofreader just add editing comments to the (LaTeX-generated) PDF directly? That's the way we do it around here. – Steven B. Segletes Oct 31 '13 at 14:25

    Not only that, it's much easier now to have it done since one no longer must encrypt the .pdf or especially enable it for such annotation: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/70050/… – WillAdams Oct 31 '13 at 14:39
