sizing HPGL files?
Posted:

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 MSsupplied 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. Rex
