The use of N is problematic since it has a defined meaning in Mathematica. However, you could use SuperStar[N] or SuperStar["N"]. pRef2 = Plot[Log[10, 0.3] - x, {x, -1, 2}, FrameLabel -> {"log L (mJy\nkpc^2)", Log[Subscript[SuperStar["N"], psr]/Subscript["N", psr]]}, Frame -> True, ImageSize -> 300] GraphicsGrid[{{pRef2}, {pRef2}}] now works. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: oshaughn [mailto:oshaughn at gravity.psu.edu] I am seeing an odd circumstance where GraphicsGrid of a plot with moderately complex frame labels crashes the front end repeatably: pRef = Plot[ Log[10, 0.3] - x, {x,-1,2}, FrameLabel->{"log L (mJy kpc^2)", Log[Subscript[Superscript[N,"*"],psr]/Subscript[N,psr]]}, Frame->True]; GraphicsGrid[{{pRef}, {pRef}}]; I know I can get something like Log[Subscript[SuperStar[N], psr]/ Subscript[N, psr]] to render almost as nicely. I'm wondering why this particular instance crashes and what sort of structures in frame labels I should avoid. -Richard
