Yes, sorry for being superficial ad a bit /ad hominem/.  Thank you very 
much for pointing this out, sincerely.

But "reading the docs" rarely can be reduced to reading just one 
concerned page. In the page you refer to, *there are others arguments*, 
passed to an Axis, where - as mentioned - *subplot will be added*. 
Perhaps it is not clear if somebody has never seen subplots before, but 
this is a question of common sense...

Subplots are very thorougly discussed in many places. If somebody knows 
anything about the subplots, he/she should know that it must be 
/*positioned*/ somehow, isn't it? (The Figure arg is redundant, though, 
as the default is there).

Best regards.
