Hi, I have the following very annoying problem in generating plots and other graphic stuff. I searched the Archives and the Web for help but I was not able to solve it. Maybe it is a trivial issue so I really hope someone can help. When I add a text cell to a plot, it happens that the text cell "overwrites" all what is drawn at the right-hand-side of the cell. It's like the text cell had a white background that extends indefinitly on the right and covers the plot. For instance, a simple command is: Plot[x,{x,0,1},Epilog->{Text["a line",{0.3,0.5}]}] The graphic result is Figure1 posted on my webpage http://pantheon.yale.edu/~mc654/mathproblem/mathproblem.html The same happens with the Ticks of the Frame (see Figure 2), and also if I use different ways of adding text to a plot, like Show[Graphics[{xxx,Text}]] (see Figure 3). I'm running Mathematica 5.0 on Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) on an Apple PowerBook G4. The problem appeared after a while, so it can be I toggled an option that I don't remember (unlikely), but I tried a complete reinstallation of Mathematica without success. Did anybody hear of the same problem? Can please anybody help? Thank you very much.
