I often use Mathematica to carry out a series of exploratory
calculations and plots -- which often evolve in a disorganized fashion
-- and then want to produce either a more polished document such as an
consulting report or class handout or slides for an onscreen
presentation based on this notebook and containing some of the results
and graphics from within it.
Anyone have any good, efficient ways of accomplishing this (on a
Macintosh to be specific) without a lot of hand cutting and pasting of
graphics and other results, and without a lot of jumping back and forth
beween Mathematica and some other application such as Word, TeX, PowerPoint, or
Just printing the original notebook itself is not an attractive solution
* The original notebook is likely to be more in "stream of
consciousness" form and not organized (or disorganized) the way I'd like
the final report or presentation to be.
* I'd like to keep the original notebook unchanged because I might want
to revise or extend the calculations, or update some of the results (and
have the report or presentation easily updated also).
* Typesetting and formatting in Mathematic I find to be unmitigated
1) Write selected results from the original notebook into a separate
"presentation notebook" (though this doesn't solve the onscreen
2) Write selected results from the original notebook into Adobe PDF
format, either in report or screen styles (attractive because Adobe PDF
documents are essentially platform independent, and can be easily
printed, posted to the web, emailed, or presented on screen using
Acrobat's built-in slide show capability).
3) Write selected results from the original notebook into PowerPoint
format (since PowerPoint also has nearly all the attractive attributes
Anyone have any well-developed solutions to this need?
In particular, any packages for writing and exporting to PowerPoint
format, or packages for writing serially to a PDF document, using Mathematica's
PDF Export capabilities?
