Hello Nitecki,

I am putting together a beamer presentation which incorporates pictures of braids using the braid package.  In this package, the figures are created  using the tikzpicture environment.  These can quickly get too tall for beamer;  when I am simply generating them in a paper, latex seems to take care of the size, but beamer does not—it simply falls off the bottom of the slide.  Is there a way (similar to for example setting units in pstricks) that I can control the height of a tikzpicture so that it fits inside a single beamer slide?

Why can’t you just put the tikzfigure inside a  \scalebox ?
See grfguide.pdf  or  graphics.pdf  or  graphic.pdf .

I use this a lot with watermarks, figures (tikz- or xypic- based), logos,
and when combining text with included images.
