Dear Daniel The following code is based in a previous answer to a similar question in this forum. The original answer was given by Carl Woll [carlw at wolfram.com]. This is the code: myplot = Plot[BesselJ[0, x], {x, 0, 10}]; First@ImportString[ExportString[myplot, "PDF"], "PDF"] The image that is produced with this code, when resized, the "text" and the "ticks" are also resized.

For example, if you look at Plot[BesselJ[0, x], {x, 0, 10}] and drag the resizing handles around, you see that, independent of all the other graphic elements, the tick labels stay the same size no matter what size you make the plot. What is the reason for this? I often want to make an array of relatively small graphics, but a problem with doing this is that the tick labels can crowd out the rest of the graphic. In the past I've just eliminated the tick labels; is there a way to introduce text that does scale with the size of the graphic? Thanks for any help! -Daniel
