In making multplots, one inconvenience I've been encountering is that "set size" applies to the entire plot, including text labels and margins. This makes it difficult to produces multiplots where the graphs are of identical size. A workaround appears to have been implemented in the form of "set lmargin at graph xxx", which allows one to place the axes of the graph at precise positions on the page. This is helpful, but still requires a lot of fiddling and calculations to make things look nice. If I decide to change the size of the graphs, for instance, I have to change the locations of all the individual axes - quite inconvenient!
I think a very helpful improvement would be to provide a way to set the size of the graphs - e.g. "set graphsize". This would automatically make all the graphs identical in size.
Additionally, it would also be very helpful to allow "set origin" to apply to the graphs too - e.g. "set graphorigin". This would work well in conjuction with "set graphsize".
With these commands, the user could work easily with the sizes and positions of the graphs, which are the principle objects of interest in the output anway. Moreover, they are clearly visible in the output, unlike plot boundaries, which are invisible!
Thanks for the excellent program!
