Attributes[ListPlot] {Protected} Attributes[Plot] {HoldAll, Protected} So: s = ImageSize -> Small; Plot[x, {x, 0, 3}, Evaluate@s] This raises the question as to why the Function pages do not list the Attributes of a function. Users would generally look to the Function page to understand how to use a routine and the Attributes are important information. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/index.html From: James Stein [mailto:james at stein.org] I may have temporary blindness, but I fail to see why the call to Plot fails here: Clear [ s ] ; s = ImageSize -> Small; ListPlot [ { 1, 2, 3 } , s ] Plot [ x, { x, 0, 3 } , s ]
