I am trying to make the MPost command in Texmaker work. I am using the Texmaker in windows 7 with miktex.
So far I used the example document below. When using the windows console I was able to use following command for convertnig the .mp file to a pdf (a frient told me to rename the pdf because the previewer of texmaker only reads pdfs with the same name as the input file):
mptopdf testfile.m && ren testfile-mps.pdf testfile.pdf
This command works great in the console, but when I tried to use it in Texmaker it didn't work anymore:
mptopdf %.mp && ren %-mps.pdf %.pdf
When using just
The pdf testfile-mps.pdf is being generated but when pressing "view PDF" texmaker says 'file not found'.
To my questions:
- So how can I make the rename command work properly?
- Or can I make texmaker showing the *-mps.pdf file?
- What is the command for automatically showing a pdf in texmaker? (So you only have to press one button for compiling and previewing)
Here my testdocument testfile.mp
outputtemplate:="%j.mps"; beginfig(1); z1=(0,0); z2=(10mm,10mm); drawarrow(z1--z2); label.ulft(btex $A$ etex, .5[z1,z2]); endfig; bye
