I export graphics to PDF using:
It gives me more than enough quality for PDFLatex. But somehow, some exported plots have 'extra' lines (it doesn't happen when I export to PNG/JPG for example):
It doesn't happen to all exported plots, and in Mathematica itself, the plot looks correct: no extra lines visible.
ListPlot is more than just a
ListPlot (it uses external data to make five different
ListPlots and is then showed in one plot using
Show), but the other plots made in the same way are perfectly fine, so I guess it has nothing to do with how the plot has been generated. Sorry I am sich a n00b, I don't know how to add all this code. So again, I have shared it online: [link to notebook code].2
The funny thing is, I have 'built' three of these plots, only the one in the shared code, gives this problem. This plot is the 'middle' plot, i.e., there has been a plot made before, then I clear the counters, and start again.
FYI: You can't run the code, because it needs external data. The external data are many CSV files containing 9 rows of each a text string and a numeric value. I am using Mathematica 220.127.116.11 on Ubuntu 13.04.
Thinking it might be some 'leftover' information, I've tried to clear all parameters/variables, quit the kernel (local), quit Mathematica as a whole. But the problem isn't solved.
I hope someone here knows what might be going on. I prefer not to change all my figures to a different format. If there is a best format for PDFLatex, then of course I will reconsider, at least for the future. But I expect PDF to fit perfectly with PDFLatex...
