Making (small) publication-quality figures?
Wed, 10/05/2022 - 04:36 am
I have several graphs (from IP8.04, Win10) to be used in a publication that requires 3 1/2" column widths. I have tried several output formats, but the best seems to be PDF. Even that has problems: the inserted MS Word figure either has dashed grid lines that are too coarse, or when scaled down, as solid lines. Worse yet, the left axis inner ticks project beyond the axis line. I have attached an example (snipped png) of the inserted figure, showing the solid gridlines (which appear dashed in the original pdf), and the poor left axis ticks. I am also attaching the original pdf, created using Save Graphics
I would appreciate any ideas on improving the reduced-size figure quality.
