Re: [R] Error in plot.new() : Figure margins too large

Hmm, but what can be the solution? Any idea? Or any documentation on that which I could read to find a solution by myself?

with the windows statement, I wanted to achive a format which fits for my plots, so that each plot will have a quadratic area.

I guess, I did not unstand that much of windows / margins and plotting areas. Maybe someone can help me (even with a good overview on these basics...)
