import pdf figures on WinPC's

Well, I'm no LyX user, but before doing something as drastic as installing a new TeX distribution, I'd check the converter's outcome on a console (a.k.a. command prompt). BTW: for pdf2ps to work, you need to have a working ghostscript installed (no idea if it ships with MikTeX/TeXLive or if it need...

import pdf figures on WinPC's

Hi Stef! LyX says there is a problem in the conversion. What is the error message? (transl. from dutch:) "Error converting to useable format" (or something similar) However, the version of the TeX installation matters: is it TeX Live 2016, 2015, ..., or is it MiKTeX 2.9, 2.8, ... even 2.9...

import pdf figures on WinPC's

I have 2 PCs, one with Win10, one with Win7. On the Win10PC, there is a problem: importing a pdf-file as figure, LyX says there is a problem in the conversion. But the final output (ctrl-R) is OK though. The win7 machine doesn't have this problem. (Sidenote: on the win7, under conversions, it says f...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

- There is only one LyX developer who uses Windows. Most use Linux. The developer on Windows does what he can and dedicates a lot of time, but it is hard when he is the only one. Ah OK, I see. This is a bit a pitty, since I strongly believe that what LyX does with LateX is exactly what "Window...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

OK, I did that for both emf and wmf to eps, now it works (though it takes quite a while the first time; also seems slow the first time I generate a pdf). But OK, it seems fine now. Thanks a lot for your time!!! (Just out of curiosity: did I do something wrong while installing? Or does this happen on...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

I see. I guess it doesn't work on your command prompt because it is not in your system path because it is within LyX's folder. Let's try this: in LyX, go to Tools > Preferences > File Handling > Converters and find the entry that says EPS -> PNG. Click on that. What is in the "Converter" ...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

In folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.2\imagemagick", the only executable I can see there, is "magick.exe". (Double-clicking on it shows a black terminal window that disappears immediately). I don't understand exactly what you mean by "opening ImageMagick from the GUI"...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

Ah yes that is helpful! Does the command 'magick' work? It appears that ImageMagick changed the name of the command (perhaps because of the conflict with the convert command you saw). When I type that at the command prompt, I get a message that this is not recognised as an internal or external comm...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

I discovered that the command line "convert" is something completely different on my system? E.g. see https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee851683.aspx ? When I do "convert /?" in the command line, I get a message that seems to confirm this... Do you still want me to try ...

Re: Metafile to EPS converter: should it work from within LY Topic is solved

No, sorry. I get this: Ongeldige parameter - "testemffile.eps" When I just do convert "testemffile.emf" I get this: Ongeldige stationsspecificatie (transl: unvalid station (or drive?) specification) [I just did a complete new install on another PC, this time windows10, with exact...
