The aspect ratio changes plot region of graph but does not change the size of the graph. See -help aspect_ratio- : " The overall size of the graph is not changed by the aspectratio() option. Thus constraining the aspect ratio will generally leave some additional space around the plot region in either the horizontal or vertical dimension." You can use the -graphregion(margin())- option to remove the margin between the inner and outer regions. Perhaps something like this: sysuse auto,clear scatter mpg price || lfit mpg price, /// graphregion(margin(zero )) xsize(4) ysize(4.5) aspect(1) scheme(s1mono) Scott On Mon, Feb 2, 2009 at 1:24 PM, Jacob Wegelin <jwegelin@vcu.edu> wrote: > Often I want to create a graph to export as a pdf or eps, for > inclusion in a manuscript.
