I'm using TikZ externalize to generate multiple figures from a single .tex file. Is there a way to suppress the generation of the large main PDF which contains all those TikZ figures?


You can call pdflatex with the --draftmode switch.

 pdflatex --shell-escape --draftmode mainfile

then no output pdf is produced.
