I am having difficulty saving an image with multiple panels as a pdf.
I have the command saveimg after the endframe command, but it only
prints the first panel to the pdf (or perhaps it doesnt space the
individual panels correctly in the pdf?).

The reason I have been using saveimg .pdf is that it seems to provide
higher quality, crisper images than using sgf or postscript files. Is
that correct?

Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ben,

    I tested with other sequence of sac commands and i see the command “save” works,
    see image attached.

    Your script seems OK, the only suggestion from manual for beginframe command, is
    reset commands to default values after endframe, as you does xlim off etc for example, but in your
    script i not see a fileid on.

    I follow the script in the help of beginframe and it works in OSX and 101.6a
