When I try to copy a plot file as a LaTex file I get the following error,

TeXForm of GraphicsBox[<<1>>,AspectRatio->NCache[1/GoldenRatio,0.6180339887498948`],Axes->{True,True},AxesLabel->{None,None},<<9>>,PlotRange->{{6.479922918`*^19,<<15>>},{<<1>>}},PlotRangeClipping->True,PlotRangePadding->{{Scaled[0.02`],Scaled[0.02`]},{Scaled[0.05`],Scaled[0.05`]}},Ticks->{Automatic,Automatic}] is not supported. >>

I am using Mathematica 10.3 and Windows 10. My goal is to place a Plot into RevteX. Any suggestions?

    $\begingroup$ TeXForm mainly works with code, especially equations and other math typesetting stuff, but not for graphics. For graphics, exporting to EPS or PDF usually works. $\endgroup$

Copy as LaTex is using function TeXForm. From the documentation this is using AMS-LaTeX that does not support complex graphics. It is basically used for text and formulas. If you want to include a graphic in your LaTex then you should export the graphic in one of the may image formats the Mathematica supports and reference that in the LaTex document.

Hope this helps
