You could rather have set compat=1.3 inside the axis environment of the tikzpicture :)

@Jake, the question refers to the pdf + TeX output from inkscape which does give a pdf_tex extension.

comment How to draw a top to bottom block diagram (flowchart) using the schemabloc package
Thanks for that! I decided against using schemabloc. I just used stock Tikz with polygons and that worked out much better for me :)!

IS there a way of obtaining the trim numbers apart from trial and error?

Thanks Count! So tell me, using \node and \draw commands for tikz boxes and arrows, is there anyway the package will calculate the positioning automatically?

Thanks Peter! I did understand most of the document by guesswork but I need top to bottom to solve the problem unfortunately. Considering looking at the pgf manual for another solution completely.

Ok from what I see, using tikz commands like \node and \draw should also give me a solution. All the examples I have seen seem to require some calculation though :(!

comment How does one create, caption, label and refer to a subfigure?
I am including this here since i can't answer my own question yet: \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{subfig} In the body the subfigure file is called a, b and so on. \begin{figure} \subfloat[caption for subfigure a \label{a}]{\includegraphics[options like trim, crop]{a.jpg}} \subfloat[caption for subfigure b \label{b}]{\includegraphics[options again]{b.jpg}} \caption{caption for the full figure} \label{whole} \end{figure} While I am in the body I refer to the full figure as \ref{whole} and then refer to the subfigures like \ref{a} and \ref{b}
