Long and short legend in figure

Postby Katjes » Wed Jan 21, 2009 9:42 am

In a figure with a multiplicity of lines, I have a detailed legend (set by the displayname option) for each series at the bottom of the chart.
In addition I would like to add the series short name or other abbreviation close to the line.
Is there a possibility to have both in one figure?
I have already tried the "add" code but this it not close to the line.

Code: Select all

a.displayname long text a
b.displayname long text a
graph test.line(s) a b
Current Figure and what the figure should look like

Unfortunately there isn't an automatic way to do this, the only way you can do it is by using the addtext command, and then working out the location you want to add it.
