Hello, I am writing a function that calls plot.phylo in the ape package with the option plot=FALSE. I then do some calculations with the output (the calculated coordinates), and then make another call to plot.phylo with plot=TRUE. If I do this, then the plot=FALSE option creates a blank plot, which is the result that is clearly documented in the help pages.
However, I do not want this blank plot, because I am saving the result (the second call to plot.phylo) to a pdf, and so the pdf has a blank page before the plot I want. And since I’m calling this in a function, I can’t “wait” for the second plot (a similar problem occurs if you run it in a knitr document) Is there a way to get the output from plot.phylo with all of the coordinates, etc. without having to have the blank plot? (I do not want an option to “add” the plot to the blank plot, if it exists, because I am doing these calculations so that in my next call I can change the x.lim options so the tree only takes up a fraction of the plot, so I need to reset the par, etc., and not just draw on the original coordinates set up by the blank plot) Thank you, Elizabeth Purdom _______________________________________________ R-sig-phylo mailing list - Rfirstname.lastname@example.org https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-sig-phylo Searchable archive at http://email@example.com/
