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


(see http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/svg-inkscape/InkscapePDFLaTeX.pdf).

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

I realized that the draft option also applies to Inkscape figures when set as a class option. For individual figures see Christian Hupfer's comment above.
