The high-resolution/vector images of many institution logos are held under copyright and strict restrictions. I don't have access to these logos personally, and I've been unsuccessful in asking for them in person for the purposes of building the document.
I have pondered, though, perhaps giving my supervisor (who can pass it on to someone who has the authority, if necessary) some sort of complete package to build the document - just add images. I was considering a makefile for some time, but that seems too technical.
I also just remembered DVI does this sort of 'referencing', so perhaps I can use that.
What would be the best way to make such a 'complete package' so that the end-builder doesn't need any knowledge of TeX or anything?
UPDATE: I now do have the resource that was previously unavailable, but the concept of 'a complete package' ready for publishing is still really interesting, if anyone has done something similar before.
If you have, you can assume the publisher...
- has all resources needed to 'finalize' the document
- does not have a TeX distribution
- is computer-literate, but not to the extent of complex command-line wizardry (but running a script is within reason).
example-image.pdfand script a search-and-replace. But the end user would still need to run TeX. And more broadly, if someone can run a
makefilethey can probably edit a
.texfile so this might not solve any actual problems.
makefileapproach could work, but it would also require running TeX. (A simple double-click can execute a makefile.)
