Re: [R] Fancy Page layout

Hello,

You can the same as trellis but with the standar graphics library in the direction you are exploring.
Use par(mfrow=c(5,2)) to display your graphics.

The size and location of the graphics can be managed with the layout() function, present in the graphics library. And with mtext and text functions you can write whatever text you like in any place of your graphics page.

Regards,
Carlos.
