Plot directly to the appropriate device, e.g. 


This is often recommendable even if you do have an on-screen graphics device because some subtleties can get lost in translation for one device to another. (The prototypical example is that a legend box is sized to hold the text in the font used on the screen device. Then, saving to PDF causes the box to be scaled and the font to change, but it can happen that the text now overruns the box extents.)
