Dear Statalisters,

I have been encountering the same problem while using Adobe Acrobat Distiller to convert EPS graphics from Stata into PDF. The problem is that after conversion, I view the resultant PDF and the graph is always "embedded" in a 8.5in by 11in "canvas" even though the graph is several sizes smaller than letterpaper size. In other words a lot of white-space is created that should not be part of the graph.

I have been attempting EPS -> PDF conversion because for a variety of reasons I need to use the pdfLaTeX driver (I typeset in LaTeX), which accepts inclusion of single-page PDF graphics but not EPS. And it's not just Distiller which creates this problem, but Ghostscript (plus GSview) as well.

All recommendations are appreciated.

Sincerely,
Tze Kwang Teo
