I tried inserting the above Graphics[ instruction (using a text editor)
into the notebook, but get the message that 'Graphics' is not an
appropriate command or primitive. That's what I mean when I said
originally "I couldn't find a way of doing that that the graphic box
would accept."
Alexei Boulbitch's suggestion may be the best solution.
Thanks for the comment.
