Re: [R] screen resolution effects on graphics

My apologies for my oversight. I am using WindowsXP. The code that produces a nice-looking jpg (when viewed on my screen) produces cramped graphics on a 800 X 600 screen. I can change the spacings on the plot and remedy the situation for 800 X 600, but that looks awkward at 1280 X 1024.

Thanks

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.
