and we responded:"I am writing a book which has many chapters, so I have a master document with each chapter a separate .tex document. Some of the chapters contain graphics in the form of .wmf or .bmp files, and some of the chapters contain tables and figures. Some of the tables and figures are too large to fit across the page, so they have to be rotated.
When I compile individual sub-documents to DVI (when possible) or to .pdf everything is fine. Unfortunately because I have tables that have to be rotated I have to compile the master document to pdf. Unfortunately when I do this the graphics no longer display: a blank space is left in the .pdf file where the graphic should appear (the caption appears normally). *But* this happens only when I try to compile the master document. When I compile a sub-document by itself to .pdf the graphic appears as expected.
Have failed to correctly set a setting in the master document or could there be some other fault?"
He replied a little later, pleased that it had worked - and the link is still available for those of you who are interested in the details. We were very glad to help one of our users going back to the 1990s.Good to hear from you again. Have a read at http://www.mackichan.com/index.html?techtalk/613.htm~mainFrame .
We like to think that one good turn deserves another. Could we ask you to refer us to half a dozen of your friends and fellow academics around the world by clicking the link below, so that they too can benefit from a free 30-day trial of our software? Hope that's not too much to ask... Thanks a lot.
