I am trying to figure out how to place styled arrowheads at the ends of axes. The arrowheads need to match those in Adobe Illustrator. I can create each type of arrowhead as a polygon, but I cannot figure out how to place the polygons correctly. I am also trying to figure out how to place tick labels at a particular distance from the axes (i.e, 3pts below the x-axis and 2 pts to the left of the y-axis.) I need to be able to center the labels under or to the side of the ticks (accounting for negative signs). Finally, when I use Plot[....], unless I include the ImageSize option, the graph appears as just a dot that needs to be dragged larger. I must have changed some default, but I cannot find it. Thanks, Beverly Fusfield
