|12.5 Ipe6upgrade: convert Ipe 6 files to Ipe 7 file format|
Ipe6upgrade takes as input a file created by any version of Ipe 6, and saves in the format of Ipe 7.0.0.
ipe6upgrade infile [ outfile ]If not provided, the outfile is guessed by adding the extension "ipe" to the infile's basename.
To reuse an Ipe 6 document in EPS or PDF format, you first run "ipeextract", which extracts the XML stream inside the document and saves it as an XML file. The Ipe 6 XML document can then be converted to Ipe 7 format using "ipe6upgrade".
If your old figure is figure.pdf, then the command
ipeextract figure.pdfwill save the XML stream as figure.xml. Then run
ipe6upgrade figure.xmlwhich will save your document in Ipe 7 format as figure.ipe. All contents of the original document should have been preserved.
