adding labels and problems with line wrap

Perhaps the line wrap is being interpretted as an end-of-line (carriage
return) when you cut and paste commands into your script.

try using the %label ppl command, e.g.

yes? plot variable_to_be_plotted
yes? ppl %label/nouser 3.25,-1.25,0,0,.18,@CR This is the Real Title

As described in the "advanced commands" in the Plot Plus for Ferret 
Users Guide:

%label/qualifier, x,y,ipos, ang,chsiz,label

   if qualifier is nouser, then x and y are in inches otherwise in user 
   ipos = -1 left, 0 center, 1 right justified
   ang  = angle of label
   chsiz = character size of label in inches
   label = label 

Hope this helps,

Meghan Cronin
