I was trying to understand the nodes feature in pst-node. I copied the following example exactly as written in the PSTricks readme.


\usepackage{pstricks, pst-node}

\Rnode{A}{sp} \hskip 2cm \Rnode{B}{Bit}

These are the file list in the log

I compiled it with XeLaTeX. However, the connecting line between the nodes A and B does not show up. Why?

  • This works for me using TL 2014. What TeX distribution are you using? – Alan Munn Jul 21 '15 at 4:12
  • I'm using texmaker – sclee Jul 21 '15 at 4:51
  • TeXMaker is an editor, not the actual TeX system. What OS are you using? – Alan Munn Jul 21 '15 at 4:52
  • I'm using windows miktex 2.9 – sclee Jul 21 '15 at 4:55
  • Can you add \listfiles before the \documentclass line in your document and recompile it. Then copy the File List that shows up in the log and edit your question to show that list. – Alan Munn Jul 21 '15 at 4:59

You viewed the dvi output which cannot show graphical elements. View always the pdf output or alternatively go into the setup of MiKTeX (YAP) and choose dvips instead of pk for the rendering of method of YAP.
