Hi Michael

If on windows (what you did not tell us) use

1.	plot your graph

2.	windows() # to create new grapfic template

3.	click on it to make it active

4.	plot(1,1,type="n")

5.	place your legend somewhere on the second plot e.g. by 
legend(locator(1), ........)


help.search("window") reveals that there is ts function window, 
but also graphic function "windows". Maybe on the "window" help 
page could be mentioned link to this quite similar (by name) 
graphic function, even if it is completely unrelated.
