Size and Orientation fields

The remaining fields control the final size and orientation of the graphic on the output page. See below for a discussion of how the final size is calculated.

The Width and Depth fields set a limit on the horizontal and vertical dimensions of the graphic. The default value means that the size is limited by the dimensions of the area into which text is being composed. Note that a graphic is still constrained by the size of the text column, even if you specify a width or depth greater than the space available on the page.

If text will be bound to the graphic (for example a figure title) you may need to set a depth value to allow for the space required for the text. This is discussed in more detail below.

The Scale field specifies a scaling factor as a percentage (ranging from 10% to 1600%). The scaling factor is used to effectively increase the natural size of the graphic (see below).

The Rotation field controls the rotation (in an anti-clockwise direction) of the graphic. Its value is an integer that specifies a number of degrees. While the drop-down allows you to select 45 degree increments, it is possible to type any number of degrees directly into the text box.

The Default DPI is used to set the resolution (number of dots per inch) of a graphic that does not specify a resolution. This value is used to specify a resolution when TopLeaf creates a bitmap version of a vector graphic.

The Minimum DPI is used to set a limit on the size of a bitmap graphic as described below.

[Warning] Warning

If you are using scalable SVG/EPS/PDF graphics with a non-zero Rotation, the image will not be scalable in PDF output. If you need these graphics to be rotated, you must build the rotation into the graphic itself.
