# How to set draft option for Inkscape figures?

I read that it is possible to pass a draft option to the graphicx package in order to speed up typesetting. However, I am using Inkscape figures via

\begin{figure}
\input{myfigure.pdf_tex}
\end{figure}


Is there a way to set a draft option, or so, for these kind of figures, so that LaTeX does not spend time on rendering them?

• \usepackage{ifdraft} and say \ifdraft{}{\input{...}} within your figure, perhaps? – user31729 Dec 29 '18 at 9:41
• @ChristianHupfer Thanks. Good to know this option. Somehow I managed to put the draft option on a child document. The Inkscape figure is actually already handled by the draft option. – Daniel Dec 29 '18 at 9:53
• Ah, I see. Perhaps you should post a self-answer then. I never worked with Inkscape yet for production, only tests so far. – user31729 Dec 29 '18 at 10:57
• @ChristianHupfer Done. Tried to make the best out of the situation. – Daniel Dec 29 '18 at 14:53
