Hi Paula,

For future reference, if you are having problems with a particular routine (in this case, gsn_csm_xy3), then one thing you might try is to go to:

and click on the "functions/procedures" link near the very top.

This will give you a list of all the functions and procedures that are called by a particular example.

You can search for "gsn_csm_xy3" on that page, and you'll see that examples xy_19.ncl and xy_27.ncl use this function. Click on the part in parentheses ("XY plots") and you can then look at the description for these examples.

Long story short: example xy_19.ncl talks about the same issue that I think you're having, and recommends using the "amOrthogonalPosF" resource to scoot that rightmost axis over.

However, the gsn_csm_xy3 routine should have been able to figure this out. If you can provide your full script and data, I can take look.

As for the second issue, I'm not sure. It would help to see your script. It looks like a case of the "plot manager" trying to make the font smaller because it thinks they are too large for some reason. I'm hoping that if you are able to move that axis over, then the fonts will readjust themselves.
