## Bounding box on plotting files inserted into a LaTeX document

 I'm trying to write basic latex code to insert a pdf graphic into a document.  I can use Rstudio to knit an Rmd file successfully inserting the plot into the document.  I can get the latex code if the "save tex" box is ticked, so I get the correct syntax used.   I don't need all the fancy things that .Rmd files can handle.  I just want a simple .tex file.  However, if I try to use a pdf file normally produced by using the pdf device, I get a message about a missing bounding box.  So I thought it might work to use R to make an eps file, which pdflatex automatically converts to a pdf.  It does import the graphic, but it takes up a whole page, which indicates that it ignores the bounding box. What does work is to use Rstudio interactively to export the graphic to a pdf file which pdflatex handles correctly.  But that's a clunky procedure which I'd like to avoid.  It must be possible since graphs were included in LaTeX documents for decades before there was Rstudio.
