If you do Format | Edit Style Sheet... for the Notebook, select the Graphics/Printout Style, then use Format | Option Inspector... type in magn (or any part of the word magnification) and hit return, I expect you will find that Magnification -> 0.85 for your StyleSheet. In other words, the StyleSheet automatically reduces the size of graphics for printout, which is usually what you want, especially if you are printing directly from a Notebook. Note that if you have Format | Show Page Breaks selected you will automatically be in the Printout Style. > > 2. The curves are not as smooth as they should be.

This, of course, assumes that you are using Windows. Under OS X you should use Edit | Copy As | PICT with embedded PostScript Cheers, Paul -- Paul Abbott Phone: +61 8 6488 2734 School of Physics, M013 Fax: +61 8 6488 1014 The University of Western Australia (CRICOS Provider No 00126G) 35 Stirling Highway Crawley WA 6009 mailto:paul at physics.uwa.edu.au AUSTRALIA http://physics.uwa.edu.au/~paul
