Tgif - Goodies

Tgif goodies are available on The README file is here for easy access.

In additional, there are goodies contributed by users of tgif.

LaTeX Equations
One can paste in a LaTeX equation (or a table, or whatever) from one's LaTeX source file into an attribute of a LaTeX equation object. Then, with one click of a button, tgif will run LaTeX/dvips/pstoepsi and import a PostScript representation of the LaTeX equation and attach it to the equation symbol. Similar procedure can be used with other batch mode text formatting software such as psroff.

Starting from tgif-4.1.11, tgif is released with 3 LaTeX equation symbols that only require simple setup (pretty much just copying them into a library directory). You need to pick which one you want to use (this may be limited by what's installed on your machine). You should also open them with tgif to see how to use them.

If you have older version of tgif, there's a gzipped tar file (latex.tar.gz) containing an equation symbol file and a LaTeX template file.

Avery Labels
A collection of Avery Label symbol files. Please try them with the MergeWithTable() command from the Special Menu (available in version 2.16 patchlevel 1 and above).

Hyper-graphics instruction on how to use the labels. If you have gzip and have a 2.16-p9 or a later version of tgif, a gzipped version of the instruction is available at
