Hello I am trying to use pstool by invoking


However, the picture does not get scaled. Here an example where this does not work:



Thanks! The picture can be downloaded here.

  • Please edit your question so that it includes a complete example that illustrates the problem. Without this, it may be difficult for anyone to help you. You might need to make your eps file available for download and add a link here, but not if you can reproduce the problem with a masterpiece such as pumpkin.eps. – Ian Thompson Feb 21 '17 at 21:55

You need to run pdflatex with shell escape enabled. So, if I save your file as test.tex, then

pdflatex --shell-escape test.tex

will work. The method for enabling shell escape might be slightly different on windows machines.

  • Thanks it's working now! However, if I try to add a label to the picture, then it looks like the label is undefined and I can't refer to the picture. Any thought? – francesco Feb 23 '17 at 22:24
  • Never mind, I got it. – francesco Feb 24 '17 at 1:23
