sizing HPGL files?

Hi folks.

I'm running Matlab 4.2 under Win3.1 and I would like to export the
plots to 2 Windows applications (Word and DVIWIN) that use the
MS-supplied HPGL graphics converter to import the plots.

When I do this the standard way, the imported plot is crisp but the
text is too small. WHen I do this in Word, I can examine the details
of the original "picture", which show that the original plot was
say 10" x 8.24" (the size after import is about 60% of this and fits
on the page like I want): apparently, both the plot and the labeling
have been reduced to fit onto the page.

And if I resize the plot to original size, the text is fine but the
plot is bigger than the page.

My question is this: is there any way within Matlab to control this
"original size"? Is there a way to, say, set the plot to be 5" x 2"
with 10pt font, so that after export and import, its "full size" would
be 5"x2" with 10pt fonts?

I tried examining the figure parameters, but there was nothing apparently
related to the 10" x 8.24" "original size": I also tried
fiddling with some of the figure parameters, but it wasn't
clear which did what.

Thanks for any advice.
