You might try the options PlotRangeClipping and ImageMargins.

One thing I often do is evaluate Options[Plot]//Column (or whatever the
function is) to get a quick list of options that might be used to control
the operation of some function.

It always helps to post an example that doesn't work properly so that
responders don't have to spend time guessing and making up an example.

I have an irritating problem with plotting- it's about a kind of a
graphics margin one cannot exceed when would like to add anything to a
plot. Sounds complex, so maybe an example- I have a plot of several
curves. I would like to add an inset to the plot. Putting the inset in
the (say) right top corner covers the original plot, so I would like
to (kind of) exceed the top right corner and let the inset stick out/
beyond the original plot. However, as far as I have tried, it is
Another example- I have a plot with curves that I would like to signed
somehow. They are quite close to each other, so there is no way like
using Graphics and putting some extra text within the plot. However,
there is a possibility [and it would look really nice] if I could put
names of the curves on the right hand side of the plot- above a name
of bottom AxesLabel. A name of a variable [the AxesLabel or the
abscissa if you want] in a plot is one or two letters and so would be
the names of the curves, but- as far as I have tried- it's impossible-
anything I would like to put above the name of abscissa hides under a
kind of really annoying margin.
Do you know any way of make this margin kind of "transparent" or
ridding of completely of this?
Thank you in advance for any solutions.
