ipetoipe — Convert between Ipe file formats

Synopsis

ipetoipe ( -pdf | -xml ) { options } input-file [ output-file ]

Description

ipetoipe converts between the two Ipe file formats XML and PDF. Options are:

-pdf
convert to PDF format
-xml
convert to XML format
-export
do not include Ipe markup in the output file.
Warning: this means that Ipe will not be able to read the resulting output file.
-pages from-to
restrict exporting to PDF to this page range. This implies the -export option.
-view page-view
only export this single view from the document. This implies the -export option.
-markedview
create a PDF page only for the marked views of marked Ipe pages. This is for instance convenient for making handouts for slides used in a presentation. This implies the -export option.
-runlatex
run Latex even for XML output. This has the effect of including the dimensions of each text object in the XML file.
-nozip
do not compress streams in PDF or Postscript output.

IPELATEXDIR
the directory where ipetoipe runs Pdflatex.
