I'm using AUCTeX+emacs, and have inline preview enabled (although it could apply to other preview enabled editor like TeXstudio). My document has a TiKZ plot generated using
gnuplot, and it has lots of items (drawn lines). When generating inline preview in AUCTeX, the computer had a big swap thrashing as soon as it comes to the part with the figure plot. I don't need preview for the plot, as it won't display correctly anyway as a dvi output. So I want to disable preview only for this part.
I confirmed that enclosing the figure with a
nopreview environment will disable inline preview, but then it spouts out error when compiling normally.
Question: What is the right way to disable preview on parts of the document?
