Thank you for warning me, but I did try pdf() and postscript().

pdf() is worse than savePlot and postscript() does the same with what 
I've tried. When I say "better" or "worse", I mean in terms of 
"dissociation potential" (I'm not sure it means anything, but my problem 
was to dissociate the graphical elements to be able to edit them 
What worked perfectly (up to now) are SVG files, from the devSVG 
function in the RSvgDevice package.

Thank you all for your advice.
