I want to typeset math in LaTeXiT in the same way it appears in Beamer. To be consistent with my Beamer presentation, I use the following preamble in LaTeXiT:

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}

I believe the typeset is fine, for example typesetting


seems to work, however there is a small but annoying white background behind "A"; how do I get rid of it, i.e. how do I get a transparent background in LaTeXiT when using the Beamer class?

    Do you mean you're pasting the LaTeXit output intto your Beamer presentation? Why not directly coding in the LaTeX file? – egreg Sep 14 '14 at 19:35
  • The default beamer theme has a white background. By the way, times is deprecated. – cfr Sep 14 '14 at 19:43
  • I know, it's just that I think LaTeXiT is supposed to output transparent backgrounds by default; why is it not working here? @egreg I paste the LaTeXiT output into another program for further processing before including the final image in Beamer. – jalalhugo Sep 14 '14 at 19:49

As cfr mentioned in the comments the default beamer theme has a white background. To get a transparent background it has to be reset. Just add

\setbeamercolor{normal text}{bg=}

to the preamble in LaTeXiT.
