Presumably you have read the help file and tried specifying width and/or height, right? Also, note the comment about copying the whole region, not just the plot. Does any of this help?

be impatient with elementary studies or fight shy of them. If it were
possible to reach the ultimate truths without the elementary studies
usually prefixed to them, these would not be preparatory studies but
superfluous diversions."
