Sorry this is off-topic.

I tried out Prosper tonight for the first time. I don't like any of the
provided styles. Can you just turn off the style? I hacked the
aqua one to get rid of the gradient on the left but I don't really
know what I am doing.  I would rather have more control over
headings and background color in the document than be stuck
with a generic style.

On the other hand it is very nice to have everything happen in one go!

I am used to ubuild from www.utopiatype.com.au - its a post processor
so you have to tex -> dvips -> ps2pdf -> open in acrobat then start again.


PS: Of course with ubuild and oztex you can produce completely
Australian slides - nice if you don't mind them being upside down :-)
