    1. TexMaths is an addon designed to provide LaTeX support into LibreOffice. LaTeX equations can be inserted as images (SVG or PNG formats) and the LaTeX code is saved into the image attribute for further editing.

    2. KLatexFormula is an easy-to-use graphical application for generating images (that you can drag and drop, copy and paste or save to disk) from LaTeX equations. It is written in Qt4.

    6. This tool provides a very simplistic gui that renders LaTeX-expressions directly while typing and is able to copy the rendered images to the clipboard or alternatively save them to the desktop while maintaining transparency information.
