Howdy,

I just uploaded a new version of my modified pdftricks.sty package.  
Besides all the previous changes to the processing steps for the  
figure files (to get the Boundingbox correct) and setting the default  
font size (along with options to change that) I've added two new  
options.

One allows you to set the document class for the figure files. This  
will be handy for forcing the use of font sizes not normally  
available in the default `article' class. The second allows you to  
set the fonts size to any value that is ``legal'' for a given  
document class. These are set using the ``standard'' key=value  
method. E.g.

\usepackage[docclass=memoir,ptsize=9pt]{pdftricks}

will put the first line

\documentclass[9pt]{memoir}

in each of the generated figure files. The default values (no  
`=value' given) are `article' and `10pt' respectively. The older 10,  
11 and 12 options for forced point sizes are still available but are  
deprecated.

As usual, please let me know of any problems.

Oh, yeah... grab the modified pdftricks as the file NewPdftricks.zip  
on my download site <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2/>.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
