I am writing my thesis in draft mode.


The univthesis is a dissertation template like a book. However, when I include figures, I only see the figure name and box enclosing it. When draft mode is removed, I get what I want. So, I was wondering if there is a way to display images even in draft mode. I have both .eps and .pdf files in the current directory.

  • Seems it is defined by univthesis. We have to know how is defined in univthesis to solve this. Feb 11, 2014 at 13:55

Try using the following setup:


This loads graphicx before the draft option is set. Alternatively (preferred), don't load graphicx but reset the package option using


Gin contains the family of keys associated with graphics/graphicx.

    \PassOptionsToPackage{final}{graphicx} is better. Or, even better, \setkeys{Gin}{draft=false} in the preamble. Anyway, it's a duplicate.
