Use the psfrag package to replace strings in EPS images, so that they are typeset with the same body font as your LaTeX document. Note that your project need. An example using the pstool package to get \psfrag commands working images in pdflatex. There’s a caveat; after the initial compile, if you add more. PostScript (EPS) files with arbitrary LATEX constructions. LATEX commands, the user instructs PSfrag to remove that tag from the figure, and replace it with.

I started using Affinity Designer yesterday and I am really impressed how powerfull the software is while being so easy to use at the same time! However, when I wanted psfrga export my first graphic to EPS in ordner to embed it in a Latex project, I realized that psfrag is not able to replace the text in the exported graphic because the text is exported as a graphic object rather than a true text object.

Why is text not being exported the way it is described in the PostScript Technology Center, e. Any thoughts on this? Will the EPS export support native text in the future? This is very important for me, otherwise I have to stick to CorelDraw.

Latex, psfrag and igor

I rarely leave text live in late graphic file meant to be placed into something else. I figure if the graphic is right, then it doesn’t need to be live text AD doesn’t have the capability to do this as far as I recall.


But then again, while I don’t know your work-flow and the reason behind leaving the text live, why not then add the text in whatever it is you are using? My computer is a nothing-special Toshiba laptop with unremarkable specs running Windows 10 bit. This is because I use AD for scientific purposes where I use text for anotations.

This can be greek letters, short formulas etc. Moreover, I want to have the text in the same size and font type as the main text. This is why I only use short label texts in the graphics which I replace with psfrag in latex. How does this work then with CD?

Sorry I don’t have an answer to the issue and it looks like if CD works for this, then basically either you would need to continue using CD in the main, latdx design all but the labels in AD, patex and bring into CD to finish up the text.

So my workflow is, e. But this of course requires the “L01” in the EPS file to be exported as text, as psfrag searched for this label in the EPS and in my example replaces the graphic’s text. When the text is exported ltaex a graphic object with paths psfrag of course cannot find it in the EPS.

I think it would be a simple-to-implement yet powerfull feature to have an option in the export pfsrag which lets the user choose between “text as text” or “text as paths”. That’s all pretty cool.


It is a good and clear use case that demonstrates why Serif should re consider using live text in an EPS export. Thank psfrat Mike, that was a really osfrag hint! I tried Acrobat Pro, pdftops, ghostscript At least this is a workaround until hopefully a “text as text” option is available in AD.

I would love to have this feature as well! Is there any feature request yet? I created a feature request for this here: You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. Sign up for a new account in our community.
