I would add that the beamer group is gaining members as we speak, not just
at the Chicago meeting but also at conferences I attend outside the realm of
Stata. And that is as it should be, given the ease with which an existing
paper`s equations are transferred to beamer and the neat progress bars
available with beamer that no longer leave the audience in the dark with
regard to the length of the talk and the position of the actual slide within
that presentation. So Till Tantau, if you are listening, keep up the good
work :-)

I liked this email, but courtesy and truth compel me to add that I
learned most of what I know under this heading from Vince Wiggins,

Stata users' meetings that I have been to split three ways on modes of
presentation. One large group uses some kind of LaTeX-based
presentation, usually Beamer. Another equally large group uses
PowerPoint, which I understand to be a MicroSoft program. A smaller
minority uses SMCL.

This emphasizes the point that was made earlier that writing in smcl is
best done by using an existing file as a template. I did not write that
presentation from scratch, but I used the following presentation by
Nick Cox as a template: .
