KLatexFormula – generate images from LaTeX equations

KLatexFormula is an easy-to-use, open source, graphical application for generating images (that you can drag and drop, copy and paste or save to disk) from LaTeX equations.

The software is Qt5-based. It doesn’t require KDE to run.

KLatexFormula also provides libraries, including klftools and klfbackend, which can be used in other programs.

Features include:

  • Drag and drop either by dragging the image directly, either by pressing on the DRAG button, and drop the image in another application (OpenOffice.org, Gimp, Inkscape, …).
  • Wide range of output formats are supported including SVG, PNG, JPG, BMP, PS/EPS, DVI, ODG, HTML, EMF/WMF, GIF, and PDF.
  • Support for high-resolution screens such as Retina displays.
  • Formula library.
  • User scripts let users add additional functionality such as converting formats into a different format.
  • Cross platform support – runs natively on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X operating systems.
