Tess Stafford <bunnyweeds@hotmail.com> writes that -graph hbox- does not
respect the -ylabel(, angle())- option.  

That is true, and it will be fixed in a future update.

Tess can change the angle in the graph editor, but as she notes that may be
tedious because she has many graphs to draw.

In the same thread, David Airey <david.airey@vanderbilt.edu> refers to his
prior posting about the "Position" option under the "Advanced" button of the
axis dialog in the Graph editor.  David says,

What David describes is a feature.  Draw a graph, then start the graph editor
and select the "Grid Edit" tool.  Now, select your y-axis and drag it to the
right of the plot region.  That's fine, but the labels and ticks stay where
they are, and since the axis is on the right of the plotregion, that is the
wrong side of the axis line.  You fix this by doing what David did:  select
the "Pointer" tool, double click the axis, select the "Advanced" button, and
change "Position" from "Left" to "Right" (because now your axis in on the
right side of the graph.)

Is that something everyone will use?  Well, no, but then that's why it's under
the "Advanced" button.
