With most Graphics functions, "PlotRange" clips plots to within defined (rectangular) areas, and when the option Frame is used, the clipping occurs at the frame boundary. Unfortunately, while this clipping applies correctly to Line, Point etc., Polygons are not clipped at all in the presence of the Frame option: these appear within the whole visible area (obscuring the axes etc.) and not just within the PlotRange. It is possible to force the clipping by brute force by adding an extra Polygon masking all but the wanted region, with colour of White: however this now also masks the axes of the Frame! (1) Is there a better way of clipping Polygons, since PlotRange is ineffective? (2) Is there a way of forcing the Frame and Axes to be plotted last instead of first, thus plotting on top of a White Polygon? -- from - John Tanner home - john at janacek.demon.co.uk mantra - curse Microsoft, curse... work - john.tanner at gecm.com I hate this 'orrible computer, I really ought to sell it: It never does what I want, but only what I tell it.
