My co-author insists on a .doc file. I have been using latex2rtf-2.3.3
and find that it handles thigs pretty well. (Mac )S 10.6.8, with a couple
of years old version of LaTeX). I was interested in seing how pandoc
worked, so I downloaded it. Thanks for posting the suggestion.
I was disappointed that I could not go backwards -- .doxx or .odt are not
allowed input formats -- as the backwards direction does not work as weel
I tried it to ..odt (opening usng LibreOffice) and .docx (WORD 2008).
Neither were as good as latex2rtf. Equations did not translate, and
in-line Greek letters looked ugly. It did not include any references or
figure references. It did not number my sections. When I opened the
.docx file, it said it used word 2007 equation stuff, which of course I do
not have. It did not understand my \parindent, etc.
I had to wrok a bit to get latex2rtf to work for me. Here are my header
