The "figure margins too large" error in R typically occurs when you are trying to create a plot and the margins of the plot are set too large for the plot to fit on the page. There are a few different ways you can try to fix this error:
- Adjust the plot margins: You can try reducing the size of the margins around the plot by using the
marparameter in the
parfunction. For example, you can try setting
mar = c(5, 4, 4, 2)to reduce the top, right, bottom, and left margins, respectively.
- Use a different plotting device: If you are using a plotting device with a fixed size (such as a PNG file), you can try using a different device that allows the plot to be resized (such as a PDF file).
- Use a different plotting function: If you are using a function that generates a static plot (such as
plot), you can try using a function that generates an interactive plot (such as
ggplot2) instead. Interactive plots allow you to zoom in on the plot and adjust the plot dimensions.
- Increase the size of the plotting window: If you are generating the plot in an R session or in a plotting window, you can try increasing the size of the window to allow the plot to fit.
