I am trying to use EPS images in TeXstudio. I had already set everything up using PDF files, and everything works great there, but the journal I'm submitting to requires EPS. My process so far is to convert the PDFs to EPSs, and then inserting them the same way into the .tex document (dragging from the folder). They are stored in the same folder as the .tex doc.

I have played around with TeXstudio's commands, including trying XeLaTeX, changing the build & view commands, etc. I suspect I'm not getting the right combination of commands.

Sidenote: I really like TeXstudio and hope to keep using it.

What am I missing?

Edit: I have tried the following:



And adding escape-shell to pdflatex command.

My error message is the same:

error: Package pdftex.def -- "file name" -eps-converted-to.pdf not found.

I am using TeXstudio 2.12.14 on Mac OS Mojave 10.14.

    Removing spaces from the file name worked. Thank you all for your help and patience! – Bkk Apr 9 at 23:40
