LaTeX Beamer

Pro - Contra


  • platform independent
  • cooperative work possible with Subversion
  • small source file size, because images are external
  • easy to integrate bitmap and vector graphics
  • uniform layout
  • many configurable templates available
  • LaTeX way to create mathematical formulas
  • LaTeX handles references and table of contents (e.g., section title in foot slide)


  • not WYSIWYG
  • cumbersome for non-uniform layouts (e.g., text + image)
  • cumbersome to make hierarchic lists
    • lot of code, Wiki-like notation would be better
