When you save to png, it is guaranteed that you will not get the behavior that you want. The only vector file formats available are pdf, eps, and svg .

Dear Walter,
The volume of -dsvg is about 2 MB so I tried -dpdf which gave me very high-quality just like -dsvg but with very suitable volume (200 KB) but I don't know how to have just figure, not a pdf file (in order to use it in microsoft office word)
Do you have information about this issue? Thanks
