Writer2LaTeX is a LaTeX export filter for Writer

Project Description

Writer2LaTeX provides Writer export filters for LaTeX and BibTeX.

This enables you to typeset your Writer documents with LaTeX, which does a better job typesetting text,in particular text with formulas. Writer2LaTeX gives you extensive control over the export of formatting. It can convert your document with as much formatting as possible preserved, or you can completely control the LaTeX code generated for each style in the source document – or even remove all formatting.
