is there a way use .eps figure from autocad and edit its labels using the psfrag package? I tried with exporting figure from autocad directly to .eps and then, in figure environment, I used \psfrag command as manual says. Here is a simple code:

    Welcome to tex.se. For us to help you better, could you please provide a minimal working example? in that way we can better understand your problem and try to help you with that. Also, could you give us more information on your issue? For instance, like whether you are using Latex or pdftex core or something else? – Raaja Oct 12 '18 at 5:55
  • as the psfrag manual explains you need the strings that are replaced to be single strings in the eps not separate string for each letter separately positioned, so if you are replacing sin x it will not work unless the string (sin x) is literally in the eps file, so you can check with a text editor which strings are in the EPS. PostScript strings are (...) delimited. – David Carlisle Oct 14 '18 at 15:57
