We think that new users should learn TikZ. It is made as a single-file module.

[pstricks] how to convert pstricks to eps?

I would like to convert. Pstake uses command line as the primary interface, but psteicks works as a Sphinx extension and a SCons tool. Is there any way to do that?

We have been using PStricks for fancy technical diagrams of the system, but have cnovert been recommended to use TikZ.

It is not recommended as we will waste much time to compile during the development phase. I have to send them tex source, which they compile with pdflatex. Pstake is a simple tool that turns PSTricks commands into an image file.

I’ve seen your pictures. Just compile your figures as pdf, eps whatever and inlcude them as straightforward images. TikZ works with many back ends, including for pstrickks who care pdftex. There are programs capable of converting rasterized line art to vector graphics but this doesn’t make sense in your case.


Clnvert do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. I was confused whether to use PSTricks or Tikz.

On the other hand, ‘decorations’ look pretty neat. Tikz has a great-looking manual and is clearly very powerful. I think pstricks is superior. What makes TikZ a better design? Sign up using Facebook. Erel Segal-Halevi 2, 6 22 To avoid many compilations, one can put every environment in the same file and use the option standalone provides to compile each picture in a separated page each with the correct adjusted size. What properties does it have that make you consider it better?

That’s a bit ridiculous.

The only option for me is to redraw the scanned pictures as vectorial figures. To be more explicit: What are the differences among the four graphic systems? Here, using pdflatex -shell-escape does not make sense for creating tight standalone diagrams.

Email Required, but never shown. The extensibility and compatibility of TiKZ is appealing leading us to agree that:.

You could attach one of your files as example to your next post so we may be able to offer some specific help or find alternatives. Absent a few times when dipping into the PS itself, TikZ and pstricks are very comparable in most ways.


If you want drawings with some decent quality, you will have to spend some time and do them properly. Even if programs try to help you, I wasn’t able to draw a simple circular arc just as I wanted to, because you should give the centre of the circle which is unkown, if you just want to mark an angle.

Convert PSTricks to TikZ – TeX – LaTeX Stack Exchange

Filename str srcstr dst pst fn def emitter targetsourceptsricks I know that for example figures created by pstricks are not supported by pdflatex, but colours are supported in. When a pstake figure has a caption, it can be referred by a reference, like PSTricks figure from external file. Be sure to set -k, otherwise the temporary directory you specified will be deleted after the script ends.

I prefer TikZ to pstricks because I think TikZ is better designed is easier to learn is compatible with pdftex gives you more power and abstraction you don’t have to specify as many coordinates by hand lets you create more beautiful graphics with the same effort it is easier to extend using TeX programming it was designed from the ground up with extensibility in mind For the users of pstricks, I’d recommend writing all new documents using TikZ in the future.
