I don't like that approach, because I have programs that create files with .ps extension that are in reality eps files. Maybe we could make the format detection more liberal: Everything that has a bounding box is recognized as eps in "included graphics mode". In "export document mode" everything is recognized as ps. That would solve this particular problem. > As for the ps2pdf conversion alone (DVI->PDF), I wonder if the autorotate > switch should be included a default in the converter section. > It's easier to remove a switch than to add one which you never heard of. > Two converters (one w/autorotate, one without it) is perhaps an overkill. > > Of course, autorotation could be set on a figure by figure basis in the > graphics menu, and on a general basis with a checkbox. Please not, that would only be confusing. If you want to set something on a figure by figure basis you can explicitly rotate it. Georg
