I have a LaTex file, and import it this way:


Now according to Help, this returns a notebook expression:

   TextData[{"Question  Define the potential temperature ", 
     Cell[BoxData[FormBox["\[Theta]", TraditionalForm]], 
      "InlineFormula"], ". "}], "Section"]}, 
 StyleDefinitions -> "Article/LaTeX-Article.nb"]

But what do I do with that? I want it displayed as text. Help refers to Notebook but that is of no help really.

    $\begingroup$ You can use it with CreateDocument, or you can pick it to parts and do something with the cells separately. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Isn't there some simple way to convert it to text, like Print[tex]? I do not want to write tons of code just to import latex, it would be almost faster to rewrite it then. Also I want to use it for part of a document (imagine first part is more easier to write in Latex the other in Mathematica (as it contains some calculations as well) so CreateDocument probably is not the best option. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Have you tried CreateDocument? I do not understand your comment. It will give you the text in a readable, copyable, editable form. $\endgroup$

NotebookWrite[SelectedNotebook[], Import["ExampleData/test.tex"]]
