My wording is preserved here, so I will underline that "looks like a glitch" is as much as I said. I prefer not to claim bugs unless I can see the incorrect code (especially if it's mine). Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk David Airey So that is 2 bugs in graph hbox. One I noted in the other thread on - graph hbox- where the justification option in the -graph editor- draws the y axis away from the plot proper, and this bug you describe.
