TexMaths - 0.36

This release adds a transparency option for PNG images. A spanish translation is also provided. Many bugs were fixed and TexMaths is now working better on Mac OS X. Please note there is a bug in LibreOffice version 3.4.4 and above that slightly corrupts SVG images in Impress and Draw. I have sent a bug report to the LibreOffice team. Note that LibreOffice 3.4.3 is not affected by this bug.

Release Details


GNU-GPL-v2 (GNU General Public License Version 2),


LibreOffice 3.5,


- Updated the help text
- Fixed the incorrect help path string in the sysconfig dialog. Now we detect the system type and modify the string accordingly
- Added a transparency option to be used with the png image format. This allows to work with transparent png equations, or to use an opaque color background. The internal graphic format used for transparent PNG images is now SVXB (Starview Bitmap/Animation, code 12) for Linux and Mac OS, and GDI (code 3) for Windows, because the bitmap format does not allow a transparent background
- Added spanish translation (thanks to Luis Jaime Salazar Ramirez)
- Restored the Word compatibility option for vertical alignment. Equations are now verticaly centered when Word compatibility is requested, otherwise they are aligned to base line. Numbered equations are always vertically centered
- Force the equation type to "latex" when the latex code starts with \begin (thanks to Luis Jaime Salazar for this tip)
- Fixed a run time error in the sysconfig dialog on Windows
- Fixed window resizing that didn't work in Debian Linux 64 bits
- When editing equations, keep the anchor mode of the image
- Fixed a crash that occurred when editing equations within tables. Now equations can be edited within tables or frames
- Fixed two bugs that prevented TexMaths to work properly when the programs latex, dvipng or dvisvgm are not located in the path. These bugs affected Mac OS X where these program are located in /usr/texbin which is not in the system path
