## Using subplot (from Hmisc) along with par(mfrow)

 Hello all,    I think this should be a relatively easy solution involving par but I can't    figure it out, involving subplot:    I'm  making  a  three-figure plot, each with a subplot.  Here's simple    reproducible code below.  But each plot seems to call the original par    setting and redraws the new plot in the first position, rather than adding    subsequent plots in a single plot window.    Can someone tell me how to fix this so the result is three figures, each    containing a subplot, all within a single plot window?    Thanks,    -Cory    library(Hmisc)    # subplot from the Hmisc package    par(mfrow=c(3,1) )    # set mfrow for 3 rows and 1 column.    plot(1:10, 1:10, main = "Plot 1")        subplot(plot(10,10, xlab="", ylab=""), x=2, y=8, size = c(0.5, 0.5) )    plot(11:20, 11:20, main = "Plot 2")        subplot(plot(10,10, xlab="", ylab=""), x=12, y=18, size = c(0.5, 0.5)    )    plot(21:30, 21:30, main = "Plot 3")        subplot(plot(10,10, xlab="", ylab=""), x=22, y=28, size = c(0.5, 0.5)    ) ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.htmland provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.

It is restoring the mfg pointer. -- David Winsemius Alameda, CA, USA ______________________________________________ [hidden email] mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-helpPLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.htmland provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
