MetaPreview  

-- compatible with WinEdt version(s) 8, 7 --

This package contains macros that simplify the editing-viewing process of MetaFont and MetaPost source files in WinEdt. It provides menu commands that output a PDF file containing all fonts from the source .mf file, or containing all or selected figures from the source .mp file.

Installation

Open the macro file Install.edt in WinEdt, and execute it by choosing Macros | Execute Current Macro. Then you can choose what to install.

Uninstallation

Open the macro file Uninstall.edt in WinEdt (also available in %b\Uninstall\MetaPreview folder), and then execute it by choosing Macros | Execute Current Macro. Then you can choose what to uninstall.

Usage

To preview the fonts in the MetaFont .mf file you're currently editing, first compile the document (choose TeX | MetaFont | MetaFont), then choose TeX | MetaFont | MetaFont Preview (or click the corresponding toolbar button). The output files are put in a resulting <yourfile>_preview.pdf file.

To preview the figures in the MetaPost .mp file you're currently editing, first compile the document (choose TeX | MetaPost | MetaPost), then choose TeX | MetaPost | MetaPost Preview All (for all figures) or TeX | MetaPost | MetaPost Preview One (for one specific figure) (or click the corresponding toolbar button). The output files are put in a resulting <yourfile>_preview.pdf file.
