With a plot window open and a plot rendered in it, printing (cmd-P) clips the graph (the bottom and right hand side thirds of the graph are clipped/masked white)

This clipped image displays in the print preview and the printed image is clipped.

Seems to affect all plots the same. The clipped region seems to be a constant proportion of the window. (i.e., resizing the plot resizes the clipped region proportionally).

Makes printing useless. Doesn't seem to affect saving.

this simple line of code reproduces the bug

plot(mpg~wt, data=mtcars)

PS: Saving the image leaves this message in the console... (and has done since mac adopted the cloud folders_
