I'm working on the website ShareLaTeX and I want to adapt the code giving by thruston in this link with the compiler PdfLaTeX instead of LuaLaTeX. I already tried to change the compiler in ShareLaTeX from PdfLaTeX to LuaLaTeX but it didn't work I guess it's due to other package I'm using in my memoir. This is my documant class :


How can I adapt the code with PdfLaTeX ?

  • I see, I will try to realize my diagram with the forest package again. – Red One Apr 28 '18 at 18:50

    @marmot that is essentially metapost so you (should) be able to extract the metapost code compile with metapost to get a pdf file and then include in to pdftex but I do not know any "automatic" packaged conversion (and I haven't used metapost this century so I don't think I'll attempt an answer:-) – David Carlisle Apr 28 '18 at 19:24
  • @DavidCarlisle, I created a new project in ShareLaTeX and I compiled the code (by thruston) with LuaLaTeX and I was able to download the pdf file, so I'll just put this file in my Memoir (screeprt document) thank you for the trick. – Red One Apr 28 '18 at 19:49
  • @RedOne oh that's easier/better than I suggested (which was to run metapost "by hand" you could post a self answer:-) – David Carlisle Apr 28 '18 at 19:50

A simple way to do this, is to create a new empty project in ShareLaTeX and copy the code of the diagramme given by thruston in it and then compile using LuaLaTeX instead of PdfLaTeX. After that I dowlonad the pdf file and put it in my principal document to get the result.
