I had to do a bit of editing: I had to specify which graph
those lines apply to. In my original graph statement I
used the option -name(col)-, so my graph was called col.
This means I had to add ".col" in front of each of these 
commands. By default (if you don't specify the -name()- 
option) the graph is called Graph, so you would add 
".Graph" to each of these commands.

Anyhow I found this out because I had seen similar tricks 
by Vince Wiggins in this talk:
