Well, I don't envy your present situation. We have all been there. You should have the 6.0 compatibility tool show up when you opened your 5.2 nb in 6.0. This will clear *much* of the problems. 1) plots no longer have a semicolon at the end unless you wish to supress output; so, just remove them; 2) The pink bit means there is a graphics error of some kind. If you mouseover the are, it should tell you what the problem is. Charlie Brummitt wrote: > Hello, > I am running into difficulties with Plot.
