I know LaTeXiT can insert equations in to Apple's Keynote software, but I am looking for a tool to insert Latex symbols that integrate into the original text in my Keynote presentation. the inline symbols and equations should blend into the full text, similar to the old TexPoint used for Microsoft Powerpoint. For example, if I input

Define a graph $$G$$ with set of edges $$E$$ and vertex $$V$$

I would like a function to convert it into enter image description here

LaTeXiT supports such conversion in Pages, but not Keynote. (the mock image above is actually a screenshot from Pages)

I can insert long text such as paragraphs and bullet points in my LaTeXiT input window, but that seems not natural, and I have to copy it back into LaTeXiT to edit them.

    $$ is tex command for display math environment. for inline math is defined $. – Zarko Feb 28 '18 at 13:56
  • This is not a direct solution to your question, but perhaps you can typeset the original text with math symbols in LaTeXiT. Below is a screen shot with version 2.10.1. The generated picture can be dragged into Keynote (and PowerPoint for Mac). ![enter image description here](i.stack.imgur.com/KQJUd.png) – Hsueh-I Lu Jun 17 '18 at 11:15

  • The OP already said they could do this, so this really doesn't answer the question. More restates part of the problem. – cfr Jun 17 '18 at 23:42

Keynote does not support inline graphics, i.e., graphics that floats with the text. Therefore this will not work.

Keynote 8.1 now supports LaTeX and MathML natively. You can use the \text{} command to produce normal text inside a formula, and Keynote uses the font matching the rest of the presentation.

  • @Bobyandbob do you know if the font of the equation can be changed from the default one? and if so, how to change it? – bobsacameno Jan 2 '19 at 15:27
  • @bobsacameno i don't know. You should ask a new question with a link to this question here. Sorry. – Bobyandbob Jan 2 '19 at 19:39
