Thank you, but this does not solve my problem. To clarify what I want, I have 2 Plots plotted with identical x values, but different scales on the y axis, say Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,2Pi},Frame->True]; Plot[20Sin[x],{x,0,2Pi},Frame->True]; However, both plots are plotted with the same dimensions, including the mismatched tick labels on the y-axis. -0.5 is longer than -20, so the actual region of the frame is smaller. I want Mathematica to give me both plots so that the size of the frame is the same, so that I can use a ruler on a print-out to directly compare points between the two graphs. With trial and error, I could probably manually resize the PlotRegion: Plot[Sin[x],{x,0,2Pi},Frame->True,PlotRegion->{{0,1},{0,1}}]; Plot[20Sin[x],{x,0,2Pi},Frame->True,PlotRegion->{{.02,1},{0,1}}]; but there has to be a better method.
