Oh sorry. An example say lots more than words. The data below, when
submitted to twoord.plot return the mentioned error. Rain are bars and Salt
lines, the bars appear and the error occurs with the salt data.

Without seeing a reproducible example we cannot be sure, but my guess is
that you are letting twoord.plot set the limits and the function does not
remove missing values, if you specify rylim and or lylim arguments
specifically, then it should not run into the problem you are seeing (I
If that does not work, then send a small reproducible example (the dput
command is great for the data part) which will help us find the problem.
