LaTeX => PS => PDF

Hello all,

I'm having trouble making the LaTeX => PS => PDF output profile. When I start TeXnicCenter for the first time, the wizard comes up. I browse to the latex executables and all that. I also add the path to my ghostview 8.56 executables and press OK. Still, I only get the 3 profiles; LaTeX => PDF, PS and DVI. I would like to have LaTeX => PS => PDF as well. How can I do this?

Thank you!

Try the profile in the attachment. You can import it via "Alt+F7". Note that it is generated for MikTeX 2.6, Ghostscript 8.60 and Adobe Reader 8 on a german system. So you have to adapt the paths to the required binaries.

TeXnicCenter output profile "LaTeX => PS => PDF". Path adaptation required.

Thanks localghost, but I think there is something wrong. PSTricks images wont appear after i run this profile. Is there anyway to make TeXnicCenter generate this profile?

EDIT: It did work.. Probably forgot to change some of the paths to the necessary executables..

Thanks localhost. I have been looking for something like this for a while. It really helped me alot and it works perfectly for me. now I can use pstricks and have the output in a pdf without problems.
That's simply wonderful!

EDIT: it doesn't show my pst-tree sadly.

First of all, I can assure that the profile works correctly. So the source of error must be on your side. Are there any error messages or warnings? Check the log file. Even harmless looking warnings can be important. If all that doesn't help, post the code in the sense of a minimal working example (MWE) that exactly shows the effect. And if necessary, post the complete log file as attachment.

Best regards

I had this problem also, and figured out how to edit the profile in the attachment to make everything work for me.

I would still like to know, just for the sake of the knowledge, how to create the LaTeX => PS => PDF profile for myself. It would also save me having to edit the .tco profile on new systems.

Can someone offer us this information please?

EDIT: Actually I didnt get it to work! Now I have a new error when compiling the .tex document, a popup that says:

[DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]

any ideas? (Im off to see what I can find...)

hello

thanks for the file. In fact I follow all steps but still I cannot see the pictures(.eps) in PDF file.

I can see the picture in dvi and ps files but not in PDF. And after I use Latex=>PS=>PDF I still have the same problem???

Any solution??

Many Thanks
