Odd behavior of Graphic

Posted 11 years ago
On my system, Mma 9.0.1.0
This will draw a frame:
(* This will draw a frame *)
Graphics[ImageSize -> 72 5, Frame -> True,
AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio, PlotRange -> {{80, 300}, {10, 70}}]

But this will not:
(* This will not *)
Graphics[Frame -> True, AspectRatio -> 1/GoldenRatio,
PlotRange -> {{80, 300}, {10, 70}}, ImageSize -> 72 5]
The only difference I can see is that in the second one the ImageSize option is at the end of the sequence of options instead of the beginning.
Any ideas?

Best regards,
David

Thanks, Bruce. But it is a rather pathlogical case, isn't it. Who would ever want a Graphics wituout any graphics?!
I ran into it while trying to learn more about creating custom graphcs.
Best,  David

The Graphic cells above actually don't have any graphic primiivites in them, they are just nothing with options. If I put a single point in them, then ImageSize controls the frame size, otherwise it is ignored. Curiouser and curiouser.

I must not understand ImageSize. I also see it does not actually affect the size of the above graphics!
