What about making an option to NewPdftricks for the font size (if you 
have time enough, of course, and if it's possible) ? i.e, something 


  Up to know, even if the principal document begins with 
"\documentclass[12pt]{article}", the header of each pdftricks file 
("file-fig1.tex", "file-fig2.tex") still is  "\documentclass{article}" 
only, without the font size option :-( Hence the labels in the figures 
are far too small...

I have found a workaround : I add "\fontsize{12pt}\selectfont" at the 
beginning of each pspicture :


But it's a bit annoying if you  numerous pictures...

However, NewPdftricks remains the most reliable way (IMO) to get 
pstricks pictures with pdflatex. For example, ps4pdf still works very 
badly pst-3dplot, the pstricks package I use most of the time...

Best regards,

Franck Pastor
