In[1]:= gr=Plot[Sin[x^2]/x,{x,-3,5}] (* Plot not shown *) Out[1]= -Graphics- In[2]:= coord=Min/@(PlotRange/.FullOptions[gr]); In[3]:= Show[gr,Graphics[Text["Some Text",coord,{-1,-1}]]] (* Plot not shown *) Out[3]= -Graphics- _____________________ Notes: In[n]:= PlotRange/.FullOptions[gr] gives you the PlotRange used to make (gr). You can use the option DisplayFunction->Identity to suppress display of the plot. Then later on you use DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction to turn it back on. Ted Ersek
