Hello,

Yes it is working fine with pdflatex also.

Thanks and regards,

Without some code that demonstrates your problem, it is difficult to
know what you mean. In case that you want to avoid the autorotate of
the second page like in the following example, try

ps2pdf -dAutoRotatePages#/None test.ps test.pdf

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lscape,lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1]

### Re: What causes "rotate 90" warnings

> I think this thread may answer your question - http://www.mail-archive.com/xetex <at> tug.org/msg01528.html
Yep, thanks, that's it.
I just hope there is a way around this.
Doesn't look like it.
But, to tell the truth, I hadn't seen any glitches in the PDF output so
far. So, I am not too worried.

Thanks,
Marko

### Re: What causes "rotate 90" warnings

Hi Mike,

yes, you are right, I have to apoligize for my minimalistic approach to
this issue. I invested too little effort in analyzing the issue myself
beforehand, I am aware of that. I just hoped I'd find someone who had see
the same warnings popping up and who knew what to do.

Anyway, since it looks like it doesn't do any harm to me now - as pointed
out in my response to David's post a few seconds ago - I just ignore the
warning.

Thanks,
Marko

### why should I refresh FNDB every time?

I wonder why should I refresh the FNDB every time I

i) add a figure to a tex file (because MikTeX can't fine the file...)

ii) every time I change the name of a tex file, because I get:

! I can't find file nnnn.aux'.
<to be read again>
\relax
l.353 \end{document}
Please type another input file name:

As far as I remember, when I used to use version 2.4-2.6, MikTeX had
no problem to find the graphics files if they were in the same folder
as the main tex file. Nowadays, I have to update de database every
time I add a figure to my text.

Am I doing anything wrong or is this the way MikTeX works today?

Best regards,

Agustin

### recent update breaks 2.9 in multiple ways...

OK, so did the update this morning. Now,

1\ relative paths to anything (e.g., image files) are broken

Simple minimal example -- first with figure in same directory as .tex file

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[h]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=3,keepaspectratio=true]{fig1.eps}
\end{center}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

Works fine. Now, move figure to upstream directory, compile fails --
can't find fig1.eps:

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[h]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=3,keepaspectratio=true]{../fig1.eps}
\end{center}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

2\ yap no longer auto renders, and whatever rendering it now uses seems

### 2.9 | upgrade breaks /includegraphics

Did a recent upgrade this morning -- including the miktex .bin. Seems as
if something has changed (yet again) in how paths are handled for
graphics. Such that, things which compiled an hour ago (before the
update), no longer do -- lots of errors about not being able to find
graphics.

Sigh.

So, I have a skeleton file for \including lots of chapters. In each
chapter I have something like

\begin{figure}[ht]
\begin{center}

\includegraphics[scale=0.8,keepaspectratio=true]{../chapter0/figs/ch0_fig2.eps}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

If someone tells me I need to use absolute path names now (or something
like that) I'm going to say bad words.  I'd have to change ~1500
images in 28 chapters, for just a single one of my books.

So, what has changed, and what flip do I need to switch to make it work
the way it used to? I already have the env variable set to let me be
'unsafe'. What else?

### recent 2.9 update breaks relative paths

Pre-updarte, following compiles perfectly:

Doing the latest 2.9 upgrade to MikTeX seems to break several things --
most critical of which is that support for relative paths seems to be
completely broken. For example,

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}[h]
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[scale=3,keepaspectratio=true]{../fig1.eps}
\end{center}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

Immediately post-updated (replicated on 2 different machines), can no longer
find the image file. I've confirmed that*anything*  that uses relative
paths is now broken, after the update.

And yes, I've already set the env variable to allow such 'unsafe things'
as relative paths.

This is really a critical change, for me. I have 100's to 1000's of images for my books that I generally
include using relative paths. The recent update complete breaks this.

Is there a workaround? And please don't tell me the change is 'for security'. If I wanted someone to change
something (or prohibit something) they though 'unsafe', I'd get a Mac (and let 'Steve' tell me what is and
is not acceptable).

Problably you have stored your document in a texmf-tree. Don't do
this. Move it to a folder where you would also store e.g. a word
document.
