Really? %-)

Oh, didn't remember that. I was completely fixed on fixing... :-)

But there isn't another way to set the range of the scales for the splom
function, is there (sorry, at the moment I am not able to look at the source
of panel.pairs)?

I have 4 variables which intrinsically have range(-1,1) and it is
significant when one of these doesn't use it's full scale. If I don't have
to look for the scales, but know that they have range(-1,1), the splom plot
becomes more comprehendable.

Thanks for you fast and kind reply,
