Nothing wrong with TiKZ pictures, but let me mention that a regular LaTeX picture environment will also do for this job.

My favorite pdf reader is Mupdf: (1) Firstly, the rendering of the popler-engine used in most pdf-viewers is horribly and mupdf's rendering is far superior (2) it's the reference pdf-viewer from ghostscript project (3) Is quite easy to use it just with a keyboard (what makes the mupdf-pdf-viewer (and onmupdf based reader)) great for presentations

Fonts are embedded by default when you compile TeX to PDF. To be sure, you may wish to upload your PDF to a cloud, say, GoogleDrive (free) and see, how it looks there in another previewer.

I'm not an expert on PDF, but the whole idea of PDF in opposite to Word is that the viewer displays the same picture and the printer prints the same glyphs on the paper. Well, more or less. It obviously does not depend on the installation of fonts on the computer you use to display the PDF, but there are differences even between different viewers on the ...

You will need the package eso-pic (eso-pic package) \usepackage{eso-pic} Before \begin{document}, define: \newcommand\BackgroundPic{ \put(0,0){ \parbox[b][\paperheight]{\paperwidth}{% \vfill \centering \includegraphics[width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]{BackGroundPDF.pdf} \vfill }}} After \begin{document}: ...

Quick and very dirty hack (far from robust) for the lazy ones: You have to compile the original document twice, which gives my-report.tex. Now modify the document a bit: modified document: \begin{document} ... \begin{titlepage} \includepdf[pages=-]{abstract.pdf} \end{titlepage} % ------------------------------------------------- % This should go to a ...

I just tried to test fonts in XeLaTeX and they obviously get embedded automatically, because when I used an obscure font and then displayed the PDF on another computer that didn't have the font, the PDF was displayed correctly. This is how i set main font: \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont[Ligatures=TeX]{CMU Serif Roman}

Fortunately ocgx2 also works with XeLaTeX.

You need to install Ghostscript software. Please check the wesite http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html There are five different files depending on your operating system. For instance, if you are working in windows xp or 7, you will need to install the file for Windows (32 bit). If you are using windows 8 or 10, you will need the file for ...

First off, most people use pdflatex nowadays. Change every image to pdf if possible replacing eps files by pdf using convert file.eps file.pdf convert is found in the imagemagick package. Remove epsfig and use includegraphics instead. Next run: pdffonts final_upload_document.pdf | less to ensure that a type 3 font problem is actually the ...

I usually make the plots within R and export it to SVG. Then I use son image editor such as Inkscape to create a PDF version. This PDF version looks nice in the final latex document. I have done this several time with optimal results.

I encountered similar issue and then realised it was the preview of my editor (texstudio) which was responsible as when I opened the pdf file points were showing up. Maybe it can help.

I fixed this issue by using the hyperxmp package. \documentclass{article} \usepackage{hyperxmp} % <-- added \newcommand*\metadata{% a, b, c% <-- problem } \usepackage[ pdftitle={\metadata}, % never enquoted pdfauthor={\metadata}, % enquoted if , or ; is present pdfsubject={\metadata}, % never enquoted pdfkeywords={\metadata}, % ...

This example produces two different versions of the readily typeset page box and places them on separate OCG layers. Both layers are added to the radio button group "reverse video" to ensure that only one of them can be enabled at a time. Moreover, we forbid the white-on-black version to be printed in order to prevent the user from accidentally wasting ...

As Martin Schröder wrote: synctex does not like special characters, follow best practices for file names. But this is applicable even for all names of directories, in which the tex file is. I had the same problem. The synctex seemed to stop working. The problem was in a name of some directory containing diacritics in my native language. When this ...

The pdftk program has the stamp and background arguments that are useful for this task. For example, I have a "draft" stamp in draft.pdf with transparent background. I apply this stamp to a pdf as follows... pdftk report.pdf stamp draft.pdf output draft_report.pdf

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions. Here's what I found that worked. With any image in Photoshop CC 2015, select Save As. Choose Photoshop PDF. I also tick the Save As a Copy box so it doesn't save over the original. When I click Save, I get a dialog box that states the settings you choose n the Save Adobe PDF dialog can override your current ...

First with tikz. This needs at least 2-3 compilations to settle down. \documentclass[a4paper]{article} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture}[overlay,remember picture] \node at (current page.center) {\includegraphics[page=1,width=\paperwidth,height=\paperheight]{pgfmanual.pdf}}; \node at (current page.center) ...

xdvipdfmx in the TeX Live 2015 rejects by default to include PDF images of version newer than 1.5. The next version of xdvipdfmx does not reject such kind of images. As a workaround until you obtain the next xdvipdfmx, use an option --output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E -V 7" For example, xelatex --output-driver="xdvipdfmx -q -E -V 7" filename.tex
