present.tex Version 2.2, April 2012 Some simple macros for preparing presentations in TeX Copyright 2010-2012 Matthias Meister Distributed under the LaTeX Project Public License present.tex holds the macros, and is simply \input in a file HowToTalkTeX.pdf is a presentation on present.tex done with the macros HowToTalkTeX.tex is the corresponding source; together with the pdf it is an example of how the macros are used to prepare a talk. Required: pdftex The macros in present.tex allow the user to: +) set a colour for the background and for the text +) set background images +) include links between parts of the presentation +) include weblinks +) include links to local files +) include images +) show slides incrementally The macros as such are simple enough so that users should not find it difficult to adapt them to their needs. A documentation for pdftex and the PDF-Reference might occasionally be useful in the context of those macros which have PDF-code in their replacement text. ----------------------- Changes From 2.1 to 2.2: Added macros \Frames, \endFrames, \onframe, \afterframe, \beforeframe to support the incremental showing of a slide as a sequence of frames. The additional source file present-transitions.tex contains macro definitions which allow to use transition effects between slides / frames. From 2.0 to 2.1: Fixed a bug which caused complaints about unknown operators 0.0RG and 0.0rg with some pdf-viewers. From 1.0 to 2.0: *) An image can be set on the slide background. *) Added control word \rm for using roman type at correct size within math. *) Rewritten colour support; miniltx.tex, color.tex, color.sty no longer required. As a result, control sequences for handling colour have changed.

present – Presentations with Plain TeX
The package offers a collection of simple macros for preparing presentations in Plain TeX. Slide colour and text colour may be set, links between parts of the presentation, to other files, and to web addresses may be inserted. Images may be included easily, and code is available to provide transition effects between slides or frames.
The structure of the macros is not overly complex, so that users should find it easy to adapt the macros to their specific needs.
