Plot device stretched on Mac - any advice?

Gunnar
Hi,

I am using R 3.0.0 on MacOSX 10.7.5 and I am have problem with visualizing data in R. When I open a simple plot,

plot (1,1);

Example

I get a rectangular window with the labels stretched (see example). I have searched for a solution online, but have been unable to find an answer on how to make the default device appear as a square. If you have any suggestions which functions/parameters to look up or how to solve this, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Gunnar

Mac OSX-specific questions should be directed to r-sig-mac.

Also, you should search before posting... this has been answered many times. I recommend search terms "R aspect ratio".

Hi Jeff,

Thanks - I've received an answer from another forum (It had to do with DPI in Quartz - rather than a simple aspect ratio).
