One way is the follow: myline = Line[{{5, -5}, {5, 5}}]; Show[Graphics[{AbsoluteThickness[2], myline}], Frame -> {True, True, False, False}, PlotLabel -> "graph 1", FrameLabel -> {"x", "y"}, Axes -> {True, False}, AxesStyle -> AbsoluteDashing[{2, 4}], PlotRange -> {{0, 10}, {-6, 6}}]; One more advanced example lstlines = (Line[{{#1, -5}, {#1, 5}}] & ) /@ Range[-10, 10]; Show[Graphics[{AbsoluteThickness[2], lstlines}], Frame -> {True, True, False, False}, PlotLabel -> "graph 1", FrameLabel -> {"x", "y"}, Axes -> {True, False}, AxesStyle -> AbsoluteDashing[{2, 4}], PlotRange -> {{-10, 10}, {-6, 6}}, ImageSize -> {400, 300}]; Here is some useful links for Mathematica graphics http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/TechNotes/263/ http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Conferences/179/ http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Conferences/181/ The last two belong to Tom Wickham-Jones the author of the very good book Mathematica Graphics: Techniques & Applications http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Books/3753/ But read carefully the relevant material from the Mathematica Book http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/book/section-2.10 Also keep in touch with this forum with so many kind Mathematica experts!
