You forgot to mention your OS. This was asked before and if I recall correctly the answer for Windows was no. An acceptable solution (imho) is to edit the Rprofile.site files and add something like   pngplotwidth <- 990 ; pngplotheight <- 700   pdfplotwidth <- 14 ; pdfplotheight <- 10 Then, use these values in your functions. It's manual, but you only need to do this once for each machine.
