Does anyone know of any programmes which will convert TeX files to MS Word format?

I\'ve tried using TeX2Word but it always blocks a couple of hundred lines in and Word crashes.

It\'s basically so that I can do a word count of .tex documents.

Via html using NoteTab + latexpie Oct 2, 2002

This sounds a little bit roundabout, but I found it to be quick and easy, provided that you have a good LaTeX-to-html program. I used the NoteTab library \"latexpie\" (NoteTab is available at http://www.notetab.com and the LaTeX libraries of NoteTab are at http://www.notetab.com/tex.htm The freeware version of NoteTab is adequate for using latexpie.



With these utilities, the conversion to html just took one click and worked like a dream. I then opened the resulting html document in the browser, selected the whole thing, copied it, and pasted into a new Word document.



Good luck, I hope it works as well for you as it did for me.

Do I need a TeX programme installed? Oct 3, 2002

Thanks for your reply GoodWords. I saw your name several times when I was searching for help on LaTeX.

My next question is:

I already use NoteTabPro, and I\'ve downloaded and installed TexPie but am not sure what to do next. Does it need a TeX application installed on my computer to work?

Ktexmaker2 / Kile for Linux Oct 3, 2002

Hi Sarah,

If you have acces to a Linux based computer, I recommend you Ktexmaker2 (renamed Kile for the desktop environment KDE3). It\'s a powerfull integrated LaTeX environnement for KDE. This all in one application enables you to edit your documents, generate the DVI output as well as the Postscript, PDF, HTML variants, and visualise them in a userfriendly GUI.



Additionaly, you can link your dictionaries with your documents, using Qwordtrans or a similar dictionary application.

As for Linux, a valuable alternative to have a Linux OS installed on your hard disk is to use a live Linux distribution running from your CD drive. For example, Knoppix (http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/)), with Kile, enables you to edit your files on your HD, while running from the CD.
