Seems like I am always losing graph space because the vertical axis is labled like "1. x 10^-10" (except the ^ isn't there). I can't seem to find a way to make it take up half the space by showing simply "10^-10". I would appreciate a clue on how to approach formatting the axis of a graph to fix this problem. Rob
