Ich sprechen ein bisschen Deutsch. ... and my spelling is quite suspect. So, dropping this into google-translate and correcting the obvious mistakes, I get:
Hi R experts ,

I have recently developed some graphics with R.
If I [use] graphics parameters such as "las" or "tcl" defining the plot command , it works . But if I [use] in the script " par (las = 1 , tcl = 0.5 ) " writing that has no effect. Why is that ?

I'm perhaps confused about what is actually occurring. Are you expecting an existing plot to be affected by executing a call to par()? You will be disappointed if that is the case. R graphics are ink-on-paper; one cannot expect an existing plot to be affected by simply using par(...). Existing plots in hte interactive device wiill be replace or overwritten depending on the settings of par's new parameter or possibly depending on a graphics functions add parameter setting.
