I am using a Mac IIsi with Mathematica 2.0 - the standard version. I was demonstrating graphics primitives to my class and there was a distinct difference in the outputs from > pt=Map[Point[{#,#^2}]&,Table[Random[],{20}]]; > ax=Line[{{1,0},{0,0},{0,1}}]; > nm=Text["y = x^2",{0.2,0.9}]; > {pt,ax,nm}//Graphics//Show > {nm,pt,ax}//Graphics//Show In the latter output, all points in pt are connected to pt[[1]].
