Mathematica 9.0.1, Linux. I try to save a plot as a pdf. I tried four different options. In each case some errors appeared as blank space

( http://yadi.sk/d/h1koyDci4z3rc ). I also tried to save as eps. Another problem appeared -- there is no half letter on the Labels:

(see here http://yadi.sk/d/OBRDmp3z4z42U ). The same figures are saved very well in Mathematica 7 without an error. Is it possible to solve this problem?

  • $\begingroup$ Convert to bmp and png works well, without errors. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I've added your images. Could you please include the code to reproduce the plots? See the help page for how to format code. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The same problem appears for simple graphics like this: Plot[{ x^2, x^5}, {x, 0, 3}, AxesLabel -> {Style["B", FontSize -> 25], Style["A", Italic, FontSize -> 25]}, TicksStyle -> Directive[Black, 20], PlotStyle -> {{Black, Thickness[0.002]}, {Black, Thickness[0.005]}}] $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I tried it on a Linux server with version 8 and could not reproduce the problem. The output of Export["p.pdf",%] looks identical to that in the notebook. I don't have version 9 on Linux, so I can't check any further, unfortunately. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ On Linux v9, Export["p.pdf",%] works for the simple $x^2$ and $x^5$ graphic. Left-clicking the graphic, then right-clicking Save Graphic As... also works. Clicking the cell bracket of the graphic, then clicking File > Save Selection As fails, producing a blank white *.pdf file. $\endgroup$ Commented May 19, 2013 at 22:15
