```It is possible to do this using the Drawing Tools from the Graphics menu on
the output of GraphicsGrid.

Or use Get Coordinates from the context menu on the output of GraphicsGrid
and then go back and add an Epilog option to GraphicsGrid.
For example, based on Bob Hanlan's example:

y1[x_] = x^2;
y2[x_] = 2 x;
pts = {x, y1[x]} /. Solve[y1[x] == y2[x], x];
GraphicsGrid[{{Plot[Evaluate[Tooltip[y1[x]]], {x, -1, 3},
Frame -> True, Axes -> False,
Epilog -> {Text[#, #, {1, -2}] & /@ pts, Red,
AbsolutePointSize[4], Point[pts]}]}, {Plot[
Evaluate[Tooltip[y2[x]]], {x, -1, 3}, Frame -> True,
Axes -> False,
Epilog -> {Text[#, #, {-1, 2}] & /@ pts, Red,
AbsolutePointSize[4], Point[pts]}]}},
Epilog -> {Darker[Green], AbsoluteDashing[{10, 5}],
Arrow[{{113.5, -208.4}, {117.8, -397.4}}],
Arrow[{{272.1, -122.6}, {275.4, -299.6}}]}]

Hope this helps...

both.  I'd like to be able to draw a line from a point in the top graph to a
point in the bottom graph.  How can I do that?
