A new pack­age has been in­stalled at tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your fa­vorite mir­ror in the next day or two. Thanks for the up­load, Jim Hef­feron ftp­maint at tug.ctan.org ================================================================= The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin-Madi­son Slide Class File Author's name: Eric Bene­dict Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported/uwm­slide Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Pro­duces slides with a sim­ple Power Point like ap­pear­ance. Sev­eral dif­fer­ent slide en­vi­ro­ments are in­cluded. Li­cense type: artis­tic An­nounce­ment text given by the con­tri­bu­tion's au­thor: - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- A slide for­mat which pro­duces slides with a sim­ple Power Point like ap­pear­ance. Sev­eral use­ful fea­tures in­clude: - - uses stan­dard ti­tlepage to pro­duce ti­tle slide - - sev­eral slide en­vi­ron­ments in­clud­ing: - plain slide (page with a ti­tle) - dou­ble slide (two col­umn page with slide ti­tle) - item slide (item list with ti­tle) - left item slide - right item slide - - places a logo on the up­per left cor­ner of each slide if the logo file logo.eps is present. - - pre­con­fig­ured in land­scape mode - - uses Times Ro­man by de­fault for sim­ple con­ver­sion to *.pdf for­mat. - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Ad­di­tional an­nounce­ment in­for­ma­tion, by the pack­age's au­thor. - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This slide class is dif­fer­ent from what I found (when I wrote it a few years ago) first in that it has a dif­fer­ent 'look and feel' for the out­put for­mat. I wanted a sim­ple base slide for­mat which would mimic the for­mat of the Power Point slides which my col­legues were pro­duc­ing. This class also adds dif­fer­ent slide en­vi­ron­ments which sim­plify the con­struc­tion of the pre­sen­ta­tion. While I saw the idea of \be­gin{slide} ... \end{slide} in other classes; I added the abil­ity to put in slide ti­tles as well as cre­at­ing dif­fer­ent `stock for­mat' slides. The pre­for­mat­ted slides al­low for quicker pre­sen­ta­tion cre­ation and are unique to my knowl­edge. For ex­am­ple to make an item­ized list slide: \be­gin{item­slide}{Ex­am­ple Item­ized List} \item First Point \item Se­cond Point \item Third Point \end{item­slide} Philosph­i­cally, I also was try­ing to min­i­mize the amount of for­mat­ing tricks which were needed by the user. I wanted the slide class to take care of those is­sues as cleanly as pos­si­ble. I've also in­cluded a sam­ple pre­sen­ta­tion which puts the class through its paces as it were. - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
