This means that the margins for 10 screens would take up more room than you have - essentially the plot area is being squeezed to nothing. You can try reducing your margins using par.

Also, it looks like you're trying to split into 20 screens there.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Subject: [R] using split.screen? [Broadcast]

Hello. I am having trouble understanding the use of split.screen. I want to divide the device surface first into 4 equal screens: split.screen(figs=c(2,2))  

This works.  

I next want to subdivide each of these 4 screens into 10 subscreens. I do, for the first of these 4 screens:  

screen(1,new=T)
and then: split.screen(figs=c(10,2))  

My understanding is that this should split screen 1 (i.e. top right) into 10 screens within its area. However, this does not work and I get the following error message: Error in plot.new() : figure margins too large

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
