38.4 DocView Conversion

For efficiency, DocView caches the images produced by gs. The name of the directory where it caches images is given by the variable doc-view-cache-directory. You can clear the cache directory by typing M-x doc-view-clear-cache.

To force reconversion of the currently viewed document, type r or g (revert-buffer). To kill the converter process associated with the current buffer, type K (doc-view-kill-proc). The command k (doc-view-kill-proc-and-buffer) kills the converter process and the DocView buffer.
