Display equations with Articulate

Hi, folks. This is one of the questions asked in advance of the European Conference in Leeds - I am hoping that, by posting it here, we may get some more ideas for the participants to ponder over on the day. Also, apologies if these questions have already been answered elsewhere - the fault is entirely mine for not looking properly. Now the question and many thanks in advance to you all for your suggestions:

 

Is there a reliable way to display equations without them resorting to gif images and pixellating?

I was going to suggest the image method nonetheless... In PowerPoint 2010 you can right-click on an object and save it as an image. I have found this to work much better for me than if I took a screenshot of the object/equation/whatever it was... Very little pixellation/distortion afterwards. But there may be alternatives out there.

If you find yourself doing that right-click stuff a lot to copy-paste as png (or your'e using an older version off PPT) you may want to use this PPT addon http://elearningenhanced.com/products/cut-n-paste-png-add-powerpoint
