Dear Group i want to use "Epilog" to plot a legend,but i have a problem for the "Line" command. ListPlot[{{1, 2, 3, 5, 8}, {2, 3, 6, 9, 10}}, Joined -> True, PlotMarkers -> Automatic, Epilog -> Inset[Framed@ Column[{Graphics[{DotDashed, Line[{{1, 0}, {2, 0}}]}] Style["a"], Graphics[{Dotted, Line[{{1, 0}, {2, 0}}]}] Style["b"]}, Spacings -> 0, ItemSize -> {15, 0.5}], {1.25, 7}]] the space between different rows in "legend area" are really large, but if i change the Line condition,such like below ListPlot[{{1, 2, 3, 5, 8}, {2, 3, 6, 9, 10}}, Joined -> True, PlotMarkers -> Automatic, Epilog -> Inset[Framed@ Column[{Graphics[{DotDashed, Line[{{100, 0}, {2, 0}}]}] Style["a"], Graphics[{Dotted, Line[{{100, 0}, {2, 0}}]}] Style["b"]}, Spacings -> 0, ItemSize -> {15, 0.5}], {1.25, 7}]] the rows became close to each other, but the length of the lines became too long how can i solve this? thank you
