Thanks Hans for the advice.

I use a mac-mini and it seems that mupdf, of which mutools is part off, does not have a macOS version, or I would have to build from source. However it looks like I can use Inkscape with a wee bit thought to do pretty much the same.

Thanks again for your help.

Dear Readers,

I have been playing about with METAFUN over the last few days trying to get a feel for it. I was wondering if it is possible to save the graphics produced in a context document for use outside. On looking at the Metapost manual I see you can using the following commands save a graphic as an svg file.

forget about producing svg this way ... (1) it would not work with fonts, and (2) mplib in luatex has svg and png output disabled.

% file: mpsvg.tex


    draw textext("Does it work?") ;

    draw boundingbox currentpicture enlarged 2mm withcolor "darkred" ;


% process

context mpsvg

mutool convert -o mpsvg.svg mpsvg.pdf
