Morning, I tried to make a simple grid and also drawing a line (handy-like). My lines are basic. I used MikTex with TexStudio. Compile is ok, a PDF is done but nothing on it, except the page numbering - in this case the "1". I'm out of clues...

Here is my code :

\usepackage{pstricks-add} %for the handy line




and the msg from system when compiled :

Process started: latex -src -interaction=nonstopmode "untitled-1".tex
Process exited normally


  • Are you sure to compile with the DVI->DVIPS->PS2PDF mode ?

  • Welcome to TeX SX! What if you try compiling with xelatex?

  • Your code works fine for me. Please try your coding with either xeLaTeX or LaTeX -> dvips -> PS2PDF, if still the error exists then post your .log file details

Ok. My bad. It was the compiling method i used. As comments told by other users above, I tried the DVI / PS / PDF and it works fine now. I think the process in TeXStudio is not as easy as it seems. I have not configured the app after the install, maybe it's the problem. Thank you all for your help.
