I always thought it to be a big omission in Mathematica that there was no facility for easily aligning multiple plots in a grid or column. Now, with the arrival of Mathematica 6, we finally have GraphicsGrid, GraphicsColumn and GraphicsRow! But -- I find those are essentially useless. When I build a GraphicsColumn composed of multiple ListPlots, the vertical axes are NOT aligned. Instead, Mathematica chooses to align the text labels on the axes. Because of this, examples in the manual look just fine, because labels on all the graphs are of the same length. But if you have, say, two ListPlots, and one has labels in the range 1..5 and the other in the range 10,000..100,000, the vertical axes will not align and the whole column will look bad. Does anyone know of a solution to this? thanks, --J.
