Hi John - I guess I'm now off your list of suspects. Certainly didn't give that link anyway. I've been on other more urgent work the last week or 6 so haven't been following the discussion.

Hi, John-S -- strange. That link is a simple graphical PDF made by scanning the original printed paper. Shouldn't cause problems even for the latest version of Adobe Reader.

Surely the default should be that annotation is placed outside the box? Almost always it will interfere (or there is a risk that it will interfere) with data being plotted within the box. When I devel ...

Paul - and all - seems to be a flurry of activity today! Thanks for the news about [stacked].

Yes, a TYPE array could help a lot - though not clear to me how you can code symbol type, size, and c ...

Paul - many thanks. I thought I had seen that.

Still the problem remains that if you have 10 or more separate sets of data to plot, the winio@('%pl',...) argument list quickly becomes very long a ...

Paul - not sure you'll get consensus on this - or even if setting "nice" limits is something that should be done within %pl. However, there are two things that I think would be much more use ...

Many thanks for those tests, John! - and the code update. Of course I should have said that the main purpose of the original coding was geographic plots where we never had either negative coordinate v ...

Good suggestion! As I said, the routine is decades old. I wrote it originally in the 1970s when graphics meant Calcomp pen plotters! 64-bit coding wasn't something we even considered then. Double prec ...

Thanks, Ken - I missed that one! That is good news.
