While SciDAVis undoubtedly produces publishing quality plots, I find it extremely annoying having to post-process them to get them the correct size, perhaps it would be possible in the export options for there to be a field with "tight to border" so we don't have to cut the edges off in GIMP every time we want a plot. it's great making a plot fit an A4 or any other page size but most times people need to export the plot as it appears in the program and not as an object in a page surrounded by whitespace.I use LaTeX so this is especially problematic when making documents as you have a large amount of whitespace around the plot which cant be typeset (readily).

Thanks for making an extremely stable and usable product,

Sean.
