I use externalization, as described in the TikZ manual, to obtain a PDF file that only contains a specific figure. This involves using the PDFLaTeX Option
when I create a build profile to accomplish this, it works in the sense that pdflatex creates a file
figure.pdf. However, I cannot get this to work with Sumatra. I want it to open automatically when it is not open, and to refresh when it's already open.
I tried instructing it to open "
figure.pdf" instead of
%bm.pdf, but it keeps opening new
Sumatra windows each time I compile. When I enable forward-search, changing the instruction from
[ForwardSearch("figure.pdf","%Wc",%l,0,0,1)], I get an error (cannot execute command). Viewer is set on do not close (as in the non-externalize case).
Does anyone know how to get it working?
