Hi Kit,

The code should have read


Not sure what happened when I cut and pasted.

I just discovered that the problem is with my MiKTeX/TeXworks installation. When the document compiles the first time it is opened in TeXworks, the graphs look fine. Any additional compilation after that results in the text being stripped out of the graphs. So restarting solves the problem, but I'm not sure what's causing it; just updated the installation to no effect. Not sure it's worth tracking down either.

What happens if you just use

graph export graph1.eps, replace

after the graph command?

I don't know what you mean by


That does not look like a valid height parameter. What I usually use with .eps files is something like


and just adjust the scale to get the desired results.
