Here is my code

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{pstool}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\psfragfig[height=83mm,keepaspectratio]{identical_distributions2}{%
\psfrag{p}[t][]{Probability of Error ($P_E$)}
\psfrag{s}[t][]{ Number of Sensors ($K$)}}

\end{document} 

I am also using identical_distributions2-psfrag file with the content:

\psfrag{p}[t][]{Probability of Error ($P_E$)}

\psfrag{s}[t][]{ Number of Sensors ($K$)}

I would like to convert this eps file to a pdf file with proper labels as described by psfrag

https://www.file-upload.net/download-14433413/identical_distributions2.eps.html

I am also using shell escape as explained here:

http://www.epr.ch/brb/wiki/blog/enable_shell_escape_in_miktex_running_from_winedt

I am not able to get a correct figure file. The x-label is half cut and not displayed properly.

If I use this eps file and use dvi->ps->pds, all is fine. I couldnt understand what was wrong here or missing.. any idea?

  • How exactly do you compile? Under which TeX distribution?

  • My guess is that you are using MiKTeX and you do not have helvetic package installed. Update MiKTeX, enable package installation "on-the-fly" or with the prompt ("Ask me") in MiKTeX settings and try again.

    @ivankokan hello. sorry for not being around for a while. I had much to do but now I am back. So your proposal was to install the helvetic package. I just checked miktex packages and searched for helvetic and it found it. After I clicked on it, it asked me whether I wanna uninstall it. So it seems this font is already installed.

Leave the \psfrag's posn positioning argument empty.

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage{pstool}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\psfragfig[height=83mm,keepaspectratio]{identical_distributions2}{%
\psfrag{p}[][]{Probability of Error ($P_E$)}
\psfrag{s}[][]{Number of Sensors ($K$)}}

\end{document}

    Abra kadabra style! This is a magic!) Jan 15, 2021 at 2:27
  • Why did you use t for \psfrag's posn positioning argument, is there any special reason?

    Oh it was just a copy paste from a paper. I didn’t have any intention of using it. Jan 18, 2021 at 12:52
