Your test is all mangleed together. You failed in your duty to read the list info and the Posting guide . NO HTML!
> If I mean to produce a plot region with size setting bydev.new(length=3,width=3)a plot region is produced, but the size is [2.281250, 5.322917], as detected by the de.size function. If I type:dev.new(length=10,width=10)I get a plot region of with the size of [7.614583, 5.322917]. It seems that the width of the new plot region cannot be set, and tt is always 5.322917. The length of the new plot region can be set, but it is always smaller that the values I set.What do I miss? What is the correct way of setting the dimension of the new plot region? I will be grateful to any help.Best regards,
The size of the device is not the size of the plot region. You need to take into account the margins. See ?par
Thank you, David.I have read the par() document. Clearly the size of the plot region is smaller than or equal to the divice size. However, if I produce a graphic device with dev.new (length, width) or other functions, I find the largest width of the new device is always 5.3 inches whatever the values I set, and the length of it is alway smaller than what I set. Could you tell me how to produce a graphic divice with correct size that I set? I need this function because the graphic divice cannot accomendate all of the graph I make with some of plot tools such as ggtree. In ggtree plot, part of the tree tips label are invisible (https://www.dropbox.com/s/87gyusx7ay1xxu8/tree.pdf?dl=0) even I set "par(mar=rep(0,4))". So I think I must plot the tree on a larger graphic device. Best regards.
