grid­slides: pack­age to cre­ate free form slides with blocks placed on a grid

This pack­age al­lows to cre­ate free form slides with blocks placed on a grid. The blocks can be filled with text, equa­tions, fig­ures etc. This al­lows more flex­i­ble slides sim­i­lar com­pared to beamer. Se­quen­tial un­con­ver­ing of el­e­ments is sup­ported. A com­piler script is pro­vided which com­piles each slide sep­a­rately, avoid­ing long com­pile times this way.

Ex­am­ple

See the file example.tex and example.pdf. Each slide is com­piled sep­a­rately us­ing compile.pl example.tex.

Sup­ported com­mands

This pack­age pro­vides only a hand­ful of com­mands, which al­low to cre­ate slides and with blocks at fixed po­si­tions.

Slides/Pages

\begin{slide}{Slide title}
  Slide content
\end{slide}

\begin{rawslide}
  Raw slide without title and style
\end{rawslide}

\begin{style}
  Define style which underlies all slides.
  Best used together with \bg{filename}!
\end{style}

\begin{style}
  \bg{figure-filename}
\end{style}

Slide con­tent blocks

The slide is di­vided in a 32x24 grid.

\bg{figure-filename}
\txt(x,y){Text content}
\block(x,y,w){Arbitrary content}
\fig(x,y,w){figure-filename}
\eq(x,y){a^2 + b^2 = c^2}

Se­quen­tial un­cov­er­ing

Each slide can be split in mul­ti­ple steps by defin­ing blocks with <n-m> an­no­ta­tions.

\txt<1->(x,y){On slide step 1 to n}
\block<2>(x,y,w){Only on step 2}
\only<2-3>{
  \block(x,y){Block content}
}

grid­slides – Free form slides with blocks placed on a grid

This pack­age al­lows cre­at­ing free form slides with blocks placed on a grid. The blocks can be filled with text, equa­tions, fig­ures etc. The re­sult­ing slides are sim­i­lar to the ones pro­duced with beamer, but more flex­i­ble.

Se­quen­tial un­con­ver­ing of el­e­ments is sup­ported. A com­piler script is pro­vided which com­piles each slide sep­a­rately, this way avoid­ing long com­pile times.
