[R] Text in a plot without x axis

You should provide an example of what you are trying to do. Try

> plot(0, 1, xlab="", xaxt="n")
> text(locator(1), "This is my text", xpd=TRUE)

The xpd= parameter controls the clipping region. The default
xpd=FALSE clips text to the plot region. You were not clear, but
if you were trying to plot outside the axes, you need xpd=TRUE
to clip to the figure region or xpd=NA to clip to the device

Subject: [R] Text in a plot without x axis

Dear R users,

Can I add a text to a plot without x axis?

I saw a function that enables placing the text with mouse

text(location, "text to place", pos, ...)


but it did not work out.
