[OS X TeX] Question on scaling

Hi all,

For a book manuscript that I’m finalizing, I use eepic to generate figures; I’ve included an example of such a figure below.  After changing the dimensions of the book to the one the publisher wants, I find that many of the figures are now too large; they need to be scaled down.

I tried \scalebox, but that doesn’t seem to work (or at least I can’t get it to work).  Is there any way that such figures could be scaled in order to avoid having to redo many of them?

Many thanks in advance.

All best wishes,


Hi Keith,

I’m using eepic to generate my figures, so it’s not \includegraphics that I use.  An example of a figure is the following:

  \put(80,90){\circle*{6}} % The gnomon, G
  \put(160,90){\circle*{3}} % Tip of the shadow, A
  \put(120,134.721359549996){\circle*{3}} % The point B
  \put(120,45.27864045){\circle*{3}} % The point C
  \dottedline{1}(120,134.721359549996)(120,45.27864045) % Connecting B and C
  \drawline(80,90)(160,90) % The shadow
\caption{Determining the east-west and north-south lines.}\label{gnomon_eastwest_northsouth}
