I adjust xsize;ysize to, I always get an 8.5x11 file.  I am able to switch

the file.  Here is how I'm trying to adjust it:

Matt,

I answered the following message in the archives years ago:
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/getfile?file=/content/support/help/MailArchives/gempak/msg00142.html

It mentions how to add scaling to the postscript file. I did this years
ago back at NCSU when doing figures since it was easier to postprocess
(eg sed script) lots of ps files for correct size and margins required
by the thesis guidelines.

As I mentioned yesterday, the PANEL attribute can be used inside of
GEMPAK programs to position the output area within the page as well.
