[ncl-talk] how to reduce white space

Hi Mary:
Many thanks for replying to my question. Adding the two lines that you
suggested did help reduce the amount of white space between the two columns
(see panel5.png). This is what I was aiming for. However, I am intrigued
with the following.
When creating panel5.png (so far without a label bar at the bottom of each
column), we get panel5.png by calling gsn_panel twice as below:
gsn_panel(wks,plot_A,(/4,1/),resL)
gsn_panel(wks,plot_B,(/4,1/),resR)
frame(wks)
Now if I use:
;panel plots:
resP = True
resP at gsnMaximize = True
resP at gsnDraw = True
resP at gsnFrame = False
resP at gsnPanelLabelBar = False
gsn_panel(wks,plots,(/4,2/),resP)
frame(wks)
then I get panel6.png. I was wondering why panel6.png is so much bigger
than panel5.png when all the resources used to create the eight individual
plots are exactly the same between the two ncl scripts? Is there a way to
mimic the size of panel6.png when using the two columns method? I did use
resL at gsnMaximize = True
and resR at gsnMaximize = True.
Thanks,
Laura
