Thanks for the information, and correcting my poorly written post. Applying the patch solved the problem. Joe Retzer

There is no 'R 2.7' (see the posting guide). Have you followed the advice
in the posting guide of using the latest (R-patched) version of R? I believe that this has been fixed since 2.7.0.

Please note Mac-specific issues as such on the subject line, and preferably ask them on the R-sig-mac list. What you describe is *not* 'R pdf output', but MacOS X pdf output from Apart from not assigning blame to innocent parties (such as the authors of the pdf() device), it helps people to help you if you don't use misleading descriptions.

Eh? I think you mean when you plot on a quartz() device and save its output to PDF, this is what happens. You will get high (not just 'nice')
quality output by using the pdf() device directly, and you can also use quartz(type="pdf").
