Klaus, Use Epilog to include Text statements. First, make the plot without the Text statements and then click off the coordinates to put into the Text statements. Plot[{Sin[x], Cos[x]}, {x, 0, Pi}, Epilog -> {Text[Sin[x], {1.24979, 0.430723}, {-1, 0}], Text[Cos[x], {2.4861, 0.735828}, {-1, 0}]}]; To click off coordinates: 1) select the graphic cell. 2) hold down Ctrl and position the cursor to the point you want to click off. 3) click and then use copy, either from the menu or the context menu. 4) paste into the Text statement. Look up Text in Help for a complete explanation of its operation. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ > From: Klaus-J.
