Dear community, Some journals require the figures for submitted papers to be of a special size. For example, the Phys. Rev. group requires that the images should be submitted in the eps format with the figure width of 8.5 cm. Up to now I solved the problem by creating the image in Mathematica, exporting it as an eps file followed by its resizing in Adobe Illustrator, that has a simple tool for that. I wonder, if there is a way to specify the size of the output image in centimeters within Mathematica? This question has already been discussed in 1999 (see [mg18166] units in graphics). The method proposed there seems however, not to work with the 8th version without modifications. Besides, it suffers from uncertainty coming from the fact that "Mathematica adds a border around the graphics and we cannot get the amount of margin that is used, because it depends of the ticks labels, the plot label" Are there any improvements in the later versions?
