<div>With the latest version R1.2.3 for Mac, I encountered some
problems with producing hardcopies of my graphics.<br>
(1) Each time I choose the menu 'Print...' of the graphics window,&nbsp;
a graphics is printed out, independent of if I press the button
'print' or 'cancel'.<br>
(2) Using the menu again for printing out, a light gray background
(hardly visible) is printed on the hardcopy.<br>
(3) Lines and symbols appear less thin, than if I use
(4) Points (2) and (3) happen also, if I copy and paste the graphics
into a word document.<br>
All these problems don't occur, if I create first a postscript with
postscript() and print it afterwards.<br>
I work on a G4 with MacOS 9.0.4 (CarbonLib 1.3.1), and I reserved
enough memory for R.<br>
Any suggestions?<br>
