One problem I have is that I use SVG images. That’s all well and good when I am rendering the courseguide as an HTML book, but when I try and produce a PDF, bookdown (well LaTeX) chokes. It’s no one’s fault really. It’s just a fact of life.
So, I need to convert my SVG images into PDFs. That’ll fix the problem.
The way I do it is
$ inkscape mygraph.svg --export-pdf=mygraph.pdf
I then created a
Makefile to cycle through all the SVGs in the
images director and convert them. I’m not sure how smart the
Makefile is, but it works.
# # Convert the SVG files to PDFs # SVGFILES := $(wildcard *.svg) all: $(SVGFILES:%.svg=%.pdf) %.pdf : %.svg inkscape --export-pdf $*.pdf $*.svg
