I put the following into a script:
....#many graphics commands

and then sourced the script. I got the error message
Error in pdfFonts(family) : 
  invalid arguments in 'pdfFonts' (must be font names)

I found the various help files on dev.copy and dev.next, etc very hard to
understand. And I have no idea how to fix the error. I'm trying to use
defaults as much as I can.

Could you possibly give a few more lines of code by way of example, Brian?
And is a dev.off() command needed after the dev.copy(....)?
Thanks a lot for your helpful replies to so many queries. They are much
