st: Solution to include scaled Stata output in LaTeX presentation (beamer) |

Hi, maybe the follwing is known to many of you, but I did not know and I didn't find anything in the FAQ or the Statalist Archive. So I thought it would be worthwhile to share this When including Stata output in a LaTeX presentation (using -sjlog- and -sjlatex-, type -findit sjlog-, -findit sjlatex-, and e.g. the "beamer" class) it is often desirable to scale the output a bit so that it fits the slide.* Setting the font does not help. After fiddling around a little I found a solution that works quite well: Use the "\scalebox" command from the "graphicx" package (which is automatically loaded in beamer). Example: \scalebox{0.7}{\begin{minipage}{\hsize} \begin{stlog} \input{whatever.log.tex} \end{stlog} \end{minipage}} The minipage seems to be necessary (although there may also be other ways to make \scalebox work with stlog). To simplify, you can definde a command in the preample of the LaTeX document as follows: ---begin of example file--- \documentclass{beamer} [...] \usepackage{stata} \def\stlogscaled#1#2{\scalebox{#1}{\begin{minipage}{\hsize} \begin{stlog} \input{#2.log.tex} \end{stlog} \end{minipage}}} [...] \begin{document} [...] \stlogscaled{0.7}{whatever} [...] \end{document} ---end of example file--- Works perfect for me. ben * The procedure to include Stata output in a LaTeX document is to save the output using the -sjlog- command and then, in LaTeX, include the output using the "stlog" environment. That is, in Stata type . sjlog using whatever, replace . ... . sjlog close, replace and then in the preamble of the LaTeX file load the stata package \usepackage{stata} and in the body of the text type \begin{stlog} \input{whatever.log.tex} \end{stlog} * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
