To turn it on permanently go to Preferences->Typesetting and Double Click on the pdflatex processing tool to open it for editing. Then add a new argument line and insert


for the argument. Finally press OK. From then on all runs of pdflatex will use --shell-escape.

I know there is a command that will allow you to activate shell escape on a file by file basis but I'm having trouble finding it at the moment.

Good Luck,
