Hi Xianguo,

    I guess your real problem does not lie at the setting of your macro but the difference between the formats of figures. And I suggest you'd better use "eps" format instead of "ps" format.

    When you open a "eps" file created by ROOT in gsviewer, it's normal that there will be a big blank(may be the "margin" you mentioned before) above the figure but it's OK when you insert this figure into Latex.

    If you converted the "eps" file into "pdf", the "margin" will disappear automatically.

    hope this helps.
