Re: Changing axis label in ranram.vs.cov in XPOSE4

Hey Paul,

I found a workaround for this issue. It's not the most elegant, but it
might push you in the right direction for a more elegant solution.

## Save the xyplot that is output by the function
fig <- ranpar.vs.cov(xpdb1, cex=0.5,x.cex=1.5,y.cex=1.5, page.numbers=
main=NULL, scales = list(x=list(cex=1.5), y=list(cex=1.5)))

## Create custom list of labels, repeating each for the number of
covariates included
label <- c(rep("IIV_CL",3), rep("IIV_Vc", 3))

## loop through the plots in your saved plot object
for(i in 1:length(fig
  ## assign the ith y-label to the ith plot

## print figure to screen

There is almost certainly a better way of accomplishing this, but this will
work for now. Good luck!
