I use a lot of
PSTricks-based graphics. Since graphics generation takes an awful long compilation time over
XeLaTeX, I resort to
pdfLaTeX first using the
auto-pst-pdf package. On a later run, meaning, once the graphics have been generated, I can use the
off option so as to use the already-existing pdf file issued by
auto-pst-pdf, but this works only over
pdfLaTeX. I've tried with the
\usepicture commands over
XeLaTeX, but I don't get the graphics.
My question goes thus: What would be a "good" approach to using the
auto-pst-pdf-generated file with the graphics in an automated way when compiling over
XeLaTeX in order to have this automated? I know I could split the
auto-pst-pdf-generated file and save the graphics on a separate basis, but I'm asking about a more efficient approach in terms of "manual tweaking."
