Hello Benedikt, I'm not sure, that my solution is the best, but in principle, the following procedure should work:  you create the graph with a single key (graphxy.graphxy( key=graph.key.key() )  you create 'referencecurves' OUTSIDE the plotarea, which have the appropriate properties (e.g. solid, dotted,... and red, green,...) with the respective titles  this will create your key  in each 'standard' plotcommand, you use the title None (title=None)  with that, the curves do not appear in the key. So in general, I would try something like: from pyx import * col1 = [style.linestyle.solid] col2 = [style.linestyle.dotted] row1 = [color.rgb.red] row2 = [color.rgb.blue] g = graph.graphxy( width=8, x=graph.axis.linear(min=0, max=2), y=graph.axis.linear(min=0, max=2), key=graph.key.key(pos="br")) g.plot( graph.data.function("y(x)=20", title=r"**2" ), [graph.style.line( col1 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("y(x)=20", title=r"**4"), [graph.style.line( col2 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("y(x)=20", title=r"x(y)"), [graph.style.line( row1 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("y(x)=20", title=r"y(x)"), [graph.style.line( row2 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("y(x)=x**2", title=None), [graph.style.line( col1 + row1 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("y(x)=x**4", title=None), [graph.style.line( col2 + row1 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("x(y)=y**2", title=None), [graph.style.line( col1 + row2 )] ) g.plot( graph.data.function("x(y)=y**4", title=None), [graph.style.line( col2 + row2 )] ) g.writeEPSfile("test") HTH, Axel On Tue, Oct 28, 2008 at 11:42 AM, Benedikt Koenig <lists@...> wrote: > Hi, > > is there a way to show keys not for every single graph, but for groups > of graphs?
