In article <8cmdki$1ul at smc.vnet.net>, you write: > Is there a way to export a Mathematica plot into another word > processor such as LAtek and MS Word 97? Technically speaking, LaTeX is a markup language and not a word processor in the normal sense. You can use Mathematica-generated graphics for both LaTeX 2e and Microsoft Word 97. For the case of LaTeX 2e, you will need to convert the graphic to an Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file. http://support.wolfram.com/Graphics/Formats/EPS/Export4.html Information on how to include EPS graphics in LaTeX documents can be found here: http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?keyword=&question=66 One pitfall of using EPS is that you must make sure that the rendering device has access to the Math fonts. See this URL for more details: http://support.wolfram.com/Graphics/Formats/EPS/IncludeFonts.html For Microsoft Word, you can use either Windows metafile or EPS. See Word's documentation on how to import graphics in either of these formats. EPS produces the best results, but the graphics generated by the Windows notebook front end do not include bitmap previews, so you will see a dummy graphic in the Word document. When you print the document on a PostScript printer, the graphic will be rendered properly in the hard copy. You may use a third-party utility like GSView32 to add a TIFF or metafile preview to the graphic. http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gsview/get29.html -- P.J.
