Dear list members,
I create all my MetaFun drawings in a separate environment file where
each individual drawing sits inside a start/stopbuffer. This allows me
to easily use those drawings in all my documents using
\processMPbuffer[name]. Works just fine.
However, I also wish to have all the drawing available in a pdf file
(each drawing on a separate page). This allows me to split the pdf and
use the drawing elsewhere (e.g. in a Powerpoint) or include page(s)
from the pdf in another document.
The below MWE represent my MetaFun drawings file.
The idea is that by uncommenting the \enablemode[makepdf] I can create
the pdf file with drawings. It seems however that startMPpage does not
accept buffers (I also tried processbuffer and processMPbuffer).
Is it possible to somehow make this work?
You can use
but loading a buffer in MPpage doesn’t work because the content of the
is just passed to MetaPost and buffers can’t be loaded inside MetaPost
Hans adds a function for this, e.g.
