Often I want to create a graph to export as a pdf or eps, for inclusion in a manuscript. The problem is that, although a command such as twoway (scatter y x) (line myfit x), aspectratio(1) graph export somegraph.pdf, replace produces a pretty plot, it is surrounded by a lot of blank marginal space to the left and right of the plot or above and below the plot. Of course, one could doctor up the resulting image in Photoshop or some image editing program. But doctoring in Photoshop has the following disadvantages: (1) it simply would be more elegant if one could produce, directly from Stata, a "tight" graphic with no wasted marginal blank space. Perhaps more important, (2) an image doctored in Photoshop is merely a collection of pixels, no longer a vector object. I've tried messing around with the -xsize- and -ysize- options but these do not seem to provide any unambiguous way to eliminate blank space. I'm working in Stata/MP 10.1 on a MacBook Pro 10.5.5 with 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and 4GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

Hope that helps, Mike
