Re: [R] Plots: I've deleted axes, now to delete space

I am outputting the plot to a pdf file using the code: dev.copy2pdf(file="testing.pdf")

The plots are too small though unless I first manually increase the size in R and then use the dev.copy command. Is there a way to automatically increase the window size? I tried fin and din, but those do not seem to work or they only increase the size to a certain degree, even though I can manually increase it to fill my screen.
