[R] vjust unresponsive (ggplot2)

Are you sure it is not working for you?  Your example code did not work for me at all until I removed the plot .margin  parameter (unit wasn't recognized).  Once I did that hjust and vjust worked as expected.  However, values between .1 and .9 for vjust don't really move the axis title very much so it may not be real noticeable.  Try a value like 2 or 3, just to make sure you easily see the change in position before concluding that nothing is happening.

Subject: [R] vjust unresponsive (ggplot2)

Hi all,

I cannot for the life of me get my axis titles to adjust vertically in a ggplot. I've seen several posts about this and have tried everything:
keeping vjust within 0 and 1, adjusting the margins, etc. hjust is behaving just as it should but vjust just mocks me in silence. No error message is produced.

Here's a sample code:



No matter what I put into vjust, nothing happens. Am I missing something obvious??

Thanks ahead of time for any help,
