Shell-Escape for "pdfLatex+MakeIndex+BibTex"

Postby BlackPhoenix » Fri Dec 07, 2012 3:13 pm

Hey everybody,
I have a small and assumably easy question, but still I couldn't find an answer.

I'm using MikTex 2.9/Texworks and would like to compile a file that requires shell-escape to be enabled. Adding "--shell-escape" in the textsetting options to "PDFLatex" works if I only want to use PDFLatex for compiling. However, I want to use the "pdfLatex+MakeIndex+BibTex" option, adding this option in the settings yields an "unknown option" error. So my question is: How can I permanently enable shell-escape for pdfLatex+MakeIndex+BibTex?

I have already looked for an answer, but couldn't find any...

Thanks for your help!

Can't you add the option for PDFLaTeX but not for MakeIndex or BibTeX?

I'm not understanding how this could be a problem, sorry if that's not helpful.
