After seeing the discussion here on pdfTeX based presentations, I
thought I would review what was out there and took a look at pdfslide.
Using my handy TeXshop plus Gerben's TeX distribution, I was quickly
able to reTeX the manual for pdfSlide and it looked nice. As my
subject line says, however, the manual supposedly includes page
transitions, but, there were no transitions I could see in Acrobat 5.05
(mac) or for that matter there weren't any when I copied the example
file to a pc. Is the page transition feature broken (I can live with
out it)? I also installed ppower4 on my mac for the demo and it works
alright as well, but I am curious if it is possible to use more
flexible tools like Adobe Illustrator to generate graphic overlays
rather than the Xfig (I think) based example which seem to require
inputting lots of coordinates.
Any cache of examples out there (source and pdf)? Ross Moore seemed
to have a nice CalTeX talk I accessed via google, but the links don't
work in it.
