This is the code generated by Geogebra, and when I try to compile the code with TeXmaker, using LaTeX, I get a pdf with a small picture. Please, understand that I don't have any knowledge of PSTricks, and I just want to be able to put the pictures I make with Geogebra into LaTeX.

The intent was to draw a quadrangle.

Please, help me fix this code.

    \newrgbcolor{ffqqtt}{1 0 0.2}
    \psset{xunit=1.0cm,yunit=1.0cm,algebraic=true,dimen=middle,dotstyle=o,dotsize=3pt 0,linewidth=0.8pt,arrowsize=3pt 2,arrowinset=0.25}

  • @TheLastError I don't understand 1493 characters used? – MaoYiyi Feb 22 '14 at 13:07

Without using Geogebra that generates inefficient PSTricks code.

  • It is hard for me to think of the projections I need for class, without having something to draw them with, as I would like to be able to just code the answers, I am not that smart. – MaoYiyi Feb 22 '14 at 13:09

Maybe it won't be big enough to suit your needs, but if you remove the lines




you will obtain bigger letters. Either way, it compiles here without problems and indeed I obtain a normal-sized quadrangle.

  • What I get is as if everything was stacked upon itself in one small 1mm X 1mm cube. I am using texmaker. I click the latex option to build and then click view pdf. – MaoYiyi Feb 22 '14 at 7:52
  • It works fine here with texmaker too. What happens if you try to compile and view by the quickest way (press F1)? – Franck Pastor Feb 22 '14 at 8:15

run that document with xelatex or configure TeXmaker to use the sequencelatex->dvips->ps2pdf when you use quickbuild, which can be set via Options->Configure TeXmaker->Quick Build`. In the right menu choose the latex/dvips/ps2pdf sequence
