I have the general
mtcars data as an example.
I create a quick
geom_point() with two variables:
ggplot(mtcars, aes(x=wt, y=mpg)) + geom_point(size=2, shape=23)
What I want is to remove everything beyond the "gray-matrix" square.
For instance, I removed the axis, titles and ticks:
ggplot(mtcars, aes(x=wt, y=mpg)) + geom_point(size=2, shape=23) + theme(axis.title.x=element_blank(), axis.text.x=element_blank(), axis.ticks.x=element_blank(), axis.title.y=element_blank(), axis.text.y=element_blank(), axis.ticks.y=element_blank())
However, in this figure there is still a white area between the gray area and the external limit of the image.
This can be visualized in RStudio. In the next image I show the "white" margin that still persists in the plot:
My question, therefore, is how can I remove that white area beyond the gray square, so that the square takes full space?
"A completely empty theme."
ggplot(data.frame(x = 0:4, y = 0:4), aes(x, y)) + geom_point(size = 2, shape = 23) + # "A completely empty theme." theme_void() + # set expansion to 0 to remove more white space scale_x_continuous(expand = c(0, 0)) + scale_y_continuous(expand = c(0, 0)) + # check theme(panel.background = element_rect("yellow"))
