Abstract The gridGraphics package provides a function, grid.echo(), that can be used to convert a plot drawn with the graphics package to a visually identical plot drawn using grid. This conversion provides access to a variety of grid tools for making customisations and additions to the plot that are not possible with the graphics package.
