How to extend the plot area for large graphs in Grapher

To expand the page edges so your graph fits on the page, click File | Page Setup. In the Page Setup dialog, click in the Size field to choose a new paper size.


If the desired page size is not listed, click Printer to select a new printer and driver.  The page sizes listed in the Page Setup dialog are determined by the page sizes supported by the default printer.  In general, selecting a PDF print driver as the default printer will provide the most page size options.


If you would like Grapher to support user defined custom pages sizes, please let us know.

    Page Setup doesn't allow changing of page edge - only page margins

    1. Functionality to change pages edges is not available in v12?
    2. Is there another procedure to change Page Edges and/or add more than the default page sizes?

    Hi Darren,

    Grapher does not currently support setting a custom page size.  I have added your vote for this functionality to our suggestion file.  In the meantime, I find that changing the printer to a PDF print driver tends to provide more page size options.  To change the printer that Grapher is pulling available page sizes from, click the Printer button in the Page Setup dialog, select the desired printer, and click OK.
