On AspectRatio

I have taken the following command from Help on AspectRatio. Show[Graphics[Circle[{0, 0}, 1], AspectRatio -> Automatic]]; This does not give an aspect ratio of 1 on my monitor. In fact when I measure the ratio of the height to width of the circle (or the surrounding box) generated by this command it is greater than 1.0. This is also true for Show[Graphics[Circle[{0, 0}, 1], AspectRatio -> 1.0]]; Am I interpreting this option correctly? In any case would you please tell me how I can get the height to width ratio = 1.0 . My application is parametric plots (phase-plane analysis) and I need the aspect ratio to be exactly one. Thanks, --V. Stokes
