Hi Maura,

I'm afraid that your message below only came to me, and wasn't copied to R-help.

I'm useless at graphics in R, but I'd recommend posting exactly what R-code that your writing, this will show what plotting commands your using and the syntax, and will allow others to provide insightful comments, otherwise they're just guessing at what your already doing.

A very vague guess that I can offer would be that the argument to main or sub could be split over multiple lines by writing it like this...

main=c("This is the first line", "and this is the second line")

...but as I say, I'm not great with graphics, and don't know what function/commands your using.

For your convenience I've CC'd this to R-help so that if you hit "Reply to all" then your message with your examples will go to the list too.

Neil
