Dear Herbert,

Thanks for this info.

It is clear that auto-pst-pdf in better but in fact my goal was not to make a complete pdf file but only to extract each pstricks picture in one eps file and I use \savePics in the pst-pdf config file. 

As psgraph is a very interesting environment, it would be interesting to add this in pst-pdf to work automatically (without postscript environment) as with pspicture.  

Best regards,

you should use auto-pst-pdf, it has some advantages.
But you must have filenames without spaces in the name.
Only the pspicture environment ist scanned by the package if you use the psgraph environment then put it into


Attached my version which runs fine with pdflatex --shell-escape Document-TeX1.tex
