 2004/09/18 01:14:18 Try it without the extension? I've not used pdftex though so I don't know; I get pdf by producing a .dvi and then running it through dvipdf (well, dvipdfm because of using Miktex).Equally one could try using the graphics/graphicx packages. graphix has nicer syntax but doesn't get on with babel so I have to use graphics. Both require a driver specification with the usepackage (so try \usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}). One then uses /includegraphics{file_name} (without extension} to insert them. graphicx enables you to put in key=value as an optional argument (for things like, scale, width height)HTH ( reply | thread )
 2004/09/18 01:15:56 i may be wrong here, but i think you can include eps files like that if you're trying to produce a pdf file straight off. see the Advanced Features section ofthis document for details and workarounds.-m- ( reply | thread )
