Rob: Graphics primitives are the basic objects that Mathematica uses to describe graphics: Plot[ArcSin[x],{x,0,1}, Epilog-> (*or Prolog*) {{PointSize[.02],Point[{.7, ArcSin[.7]}], Text[{"x","y"},{.7, ArcSin[.7]},{-1,1}],(*{-1,1} is the offset*) Line[{{1,0},{1, ArcSin[1]}}] }} ] InputForm[%] (*to see the Mma code *) Show[Graphics[ { {Thickness[.02],Hue[0], Line[{{0,0},{1,2},{2,0}}]}, (*{..} isolate Thickness and Hue*) {PointSize[.03],Hue[.7],Point[{1,1}]}, Text["blue point",{1,1},{0,-2}] }, Frame -> True ]] Allan Hayes hay at haystack.demon.co.uk http://www.haystack.demon.co.uk/training.html voice:+44 (0)116 2714198 fax: +44 (0)116 2718642 12 Copse Close, Leicester, LE2 4FB, UK
