    Hello !
    I use latex with xetex +xeletex on Macosx using texshop (MacTeX distribution).

    How to make MetaUML work ? I am trying since 3 days.

    I understand your nuisance, I lost my share of days with Metapost/MetaUML too ;)

    I don't have a MacOS machine to test, but if you can create plain MetaPost images and import them into your LaTeX article, you should be able to work with MetaUML as well. If not, please write to a MetaPost forum asking how to work with MetaPost on Mac.

    If you send me some specifics of the problems you experience, I might be able to give you some additional hints.

    Best regards,

    Hello !

    MetaUML does work very fine in latex with pdflatex,
    but I write in different languages in the same tex file (english, french, arabic).

    And, for mixing RTL and LTR languages xetex/xelatex is far better solution.

    Of course, it's a solution to do that but first of all it's not elegant.

    Beside it's very expensive in time.
    Last but not least, generation of  pictures from the tex file is an amazing tex feature.

    Thank you.
    I'm still working on that.
