I am proofreading a paper for someone else. I have the .tex file but no EPS graphics files. I would like to make a PDF file to read the changes in text that I made, but I keep getting errors because it can't find any of the graphic files. Can I create a PDF file by ignoring the graphics?

will replace every image by a rule. You get a warning but no error for missing files.
