What is the difference between white and transparent?
Context: using LaTeXiT to generate equations for Keynote.
Only the TEXT of equations dropped into Keynote appears on the slide;
the background shows through. However, if you color some characters
white, they show up as white in Keynote. So there is a difference in
the pdf file between "white" areas and, for lack of better word,
I would like to be able to make certain portions of some equations
"transparent".* How can this be done?
*Why? To use Keynote builds to build up a complicated equation
piece-by-piece, yet have the alignment of parts of the equation remain
in place so that you can't tell a new version of the equation has been
built in. Only way I can figure how to do this is typeset the entire
equation but "hide" parts of them. White works fine on a white
Off-list CC's appreciated, as I'm on the digest.
