POSTSCRIPT BOUNDING BOXName:
When importing Dataplot Postscript files into other programs, it may be prefferable to have the bounding box reflect either the landscape (i.e., 11 inch x 8.5 inch) or portrait (i.e., 8.5 inch x 11 inch) orientation.
Setting this switch to FIXED will set the bounding box according to whatever orientation is in effect when the DEVICE 2 POSTSCRIPT command is entered. In this case, you should not change the orientation until a DEVICE 2 CLOSE command is entered. Setting this swith to FLOAT will use the default 11 inch x 11 inch bounding box (and you can change the orientation as often as you like).
If you are only interested in printing the Postscript file, you can ignore this command. If you intend to import the Postscript file into another program, it may be helpful to set the FIXED option.
This command does not apply to encapsulated Postscript files. Since encapsulated assumes that each graph will be in a separate file, it already sets the bounding box according to the orientation.
where FIXED specifies that the bounding box will be set using the current orientation and FLOAT sets the bounding box assuming that either landscape or portait orientation may be used.
