#insert plot code here

Will create as many png files as pages in your plot. "%d" as part of the filename is the magic here.

To change layout of graphs:
par(mfrow=c(4,2)) will give you four rows of two plots.

Hey Neil

If you would like to save your graphics in a pdf you could also add the following code
before and after the code that creates the graphics.
This would save all graphics in a “multipage”-pdf in the working folder:

pdf("my_bootstrap_analysis.pdf", width=10, height=8)

Hi Neil,

We don't have the code piece surrounding the graphics call but you could maybe add the following graphics device call just prior to the graphing commands: windows(record=T). Or add the "record=T" option if the windows() call is there (under Mac OS, the graphics device call should be "quartz()" instead of windows(), I think). You should then be able to page up or down with the keyboard.

Subject: [NMusers] Bootstrap histograms in R


I have just run a bootstrap analysis on my final Pop PK model using NONMEM 7.2 with PDx-Pop 5. My model has 7 Thetas in it and when I come to evaluate the output from the bootstrap in R the Theta histograms are plotted in a 3x2 matrix in an R window, and the plot for Theta 7 seems to overwrite the plot for Thetas 1-6 so that I cannot see them – there is just one window open with the Theta 7 histogram.

Does anybody know if there is a way to change the PDx-Pop supplied R script or an option somewhere within PDx-Pop to change the plots to plot 8 to a page (4x2 matrix), or so the plots go onto separate pages/tabs so I can get the Theta 1-6 histograms?

Many thanks
