For a consistent look of typographic fonts I often use Latex’s overpic to add text to figures. My question: do editors/reviewers of publishing venues (physics and computer science) reject this practice or not? Generally speaking here. The publishing venue I am currently writing for has not prohibited overpic, but I (and possibly other overpic users) would like to hear an answer upfront, so we can make a well-thought decision about whether to use overpic or not.

N.B.: no need to provide overpic alternatives, I am aware of them, none of them really match overpic’s results. I am interested in comments/answers why or in which cases overpic should not be used. I am for example assuming editors hardly change a figure (generally speaking), which may be a wrong assumption.
