Dear Martin,
 
This was more complicated to follow, and I just have to go over the details to see the exact sequence.

I was wondering if you would comment on the following:

- Would it be possible to have only one graph instead of two separate panels of the same graph? This way the two interventions would be next to each other within the same interval
-How could I connect the means with a line?
-Would it be possible to draw one bar chart with the same information?


Thank you very much.

Best wishes,

Nick
