Precisely. Thanks Brian.

I did do something like this but not nearly so elegantly.

I suggest this become the standard version in the next release. I can't see that it can break any existing code. It's a pity now we can't make ylim = "common" the default.

Regards,
Bill V.

Is the attached the sort of thing you are looking for? It allows ylim to be specified, including as "common".
