I am trying to convert a latex pdf using latex2rtf. My latex document is generated using the ACM Conference Proceedings Template. The latex2rtf instructions says that I need the .aux file and .bbl file which are generated by running latex on the .tex file.

enter image description here

So, I ran the sample-authordraft.tex file, but I did not get the aux and bbl file that latex2rtf is looking for. sample-authordraft.bbl and sample-authordraft.aux are missing. How do I fix this?

EDIT1: I was able to get the aux and bbl files from overleaf, still could not find through local run. However, I am still getting the following errors:

sample-authordraft.tex:1   Document format <acmart> unknown, using article format
sample-authordraft.tex:1   Package/option 'sigconf' unknown.
sample-authordraft.tex:1   Package/option 'authordraft' unknown.
sample-authordraft.tex:2   Package/option 'siunitx' unknown.

  • If you compiled on Overleaf, you can download the .aux and .bbl files from the list of output files: overleaf.com/learn/how-to/View_generated_files If you're compiling locally on your own PC, these files will be available in the directory you compiled within. Note that Overleaf's output files will be named output.aux and output.bbl but you'll have to rename them to have the same base name as your main .tex file in order for latex2rtf to find them.

  • I was running the latex using GUI (pdflatex+makeindex+bibtex), and could not see any generated aux and bbl file in the directory where i was running it from. However, I was able to download it from overeaf, Thank you so much @PaulGessler Apr 15, 2020 at 21:42
