I'm using texmaker. I create my diagrams with excel via a pdf print. When I include this pdf to my document I scale this pdf to the textwidth. The result looks like that the aspect ratio wasn't respected. There is suddenly an ugly gap between the units on the y-axis.

That's the code including my pdf

\captionof{diagram}{\label{dia:dia name}

Adding keepaspectratio=true to includegraphics doesn't help. It looks like latex doesn't respect the aspects ratio.

That's the diagram sniping with the wrong y axis. Why is there suddenly a blank space.....It doesn't appear in the original pdf generated from excel.

diagramm wrong y-axis please help.


Its again me the thread starter.....at the blank space should be a µ. Why can latex not display it anymore? I used in excel Latin Modern 12. With another font like arial latex can display the µ.

    That looks like a fairly easy graph. Have you considered letting LaTeX make the diagram? I'd recommend pgfplots for that. It has a very extensive manual to get you started, and there's also a lot of questions here regarding this package. Also, welome to our site! – Tom Bombadil Oct 15 '15 at 6:37

    Try \pdfinclusioncopyfonts=1 in your preamble. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 15 '15 at 7:07

    There is nothing in the image you show to suggest that the image has been scaled by different amounts in the x and y directions, the text is not distorted, why do you ask about keepaspectratio? – David Carlisle Oct 15 '15 at 7:09
  • It seems that, in the end, your question completely changed. Please consider changing the title and also the text of the question to immediately address the real problem. – jarauh Oct 17 '15 at 3:19

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. A suggestion: Do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user1234". – Martin Schröder Oct 17 '15 at 21:14
