In my document, I have to use XeLaTeX to get the output. On the other hand, I'm using
Ipe to produce some graphic files with some labels on them. I want to have these labels in Persian. Is there a way to change the TeX engine from pdfLaTeX to XeLaTeX in Ipe?
I do not think it is possible without rewriting Ipe. It is hardcoded in the source, and since Ipe parses the
You can try to download the source, in the
src/ipelib/platform.cpp file replace all occurrences of
xelatex, and compile Ipe, but I would be very surprised if that worked.
It's possible, you can write a shell script / batch file, name it "pdflatex", and put the path to the directory containing the script in IPELATEXPATH.
