Posted By: softwarefailure. on 2024/6/6 14:18:14

Airsoft Softwair, the unstoppable coding machine, is back on your screen with a massive new Hollywood plugin release: hTeX. hTeX allows you to experience the wonderful world of LaTeX as it makes it possible to use the LaTeX markup language from Hollywood. This makes it possible to easily display mathematical formulas in your Hollywood scripts and Hollywood Designer projects. On top of that, you can also use more advanced LaTeX features like tables, boxes, and finetuned formatting. Finally, hTeX also allows you to export LaTeX formatted text as PDF documents, SVG images, and PNG images.

Using hTeX is very simple and convenient because the plugin directly interfaces with Hollywood's text library so you don't need to learn any new functions but you can just use the functions from Hollywood's text library. As soon as the hTeX plugin is installed, all functions from Hollywood's text library will automatically be able to handle text formatted in LaTeX. hTeX will make the text available to Hollywood as full vector text which means that it can be infinitely scaled, rotated, and transformed without any loss of quality.

Of course hTeX also supports our brand-new Hollywood Designer 7 which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. So after you've installed the hTeX plugin, Hollywood Designer 7 will automatically become a state-of-the-art editor for LaTeX, just take a look at what is possible when using hTeX together with Hollywood Designer 7:

The hTeX distribution comes with several examples as well as a comprehensive documentation to get you started quickly. And the best of all: hTeX is provided free of charge. Thus, please consider buying Hollywood to show your support for our massive development efforts. Note that Hollywood 10 or Hollywood Designer 7 are strictly required by hTeX.

The plugin is now available for free download from the official Hollywood portal. Thanks to Hollywood's cross-platform plugin system versions for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, Linux, macOS and Windows are provided.

This release was brought to you by Airsoft Softwair, the hardest working men in code business.
