.

Oh...so I was not using something correctly. Still the border of the axis is not redrawn on the left side if you do that and sometimes is drawn between two grouping variables. But now I understand the intention of that dialog box.

So back to the main question, justification is only really available in text boxes?

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,

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.

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.
