Suppose that a plot is generated (with latex interpreter and svgconvert, if needed). To export as an eps file to be included in some main.tex file, the plot can be exported as
print -depsc foo1.eps
print -depslatex foo2.tex
and inserted accordingly into main.tex
As far as I could understand, the first approach has the advantage that all the plot information is stored in the eps file, while the second approach split the plot information in 2 files (tex + eps).
However, the second is easier to edit labels, etc, and the fonts will match the same used in the main.tex file, while the first one will use some standard/fixed font.
Are there other pros and cons of each approach? What am I missing?
