As of Version 6.0, GraphicsSpacing has been superseded by the general option Spacings for GraphicsGrid and related functions.

is an option for GraphicsArray that specifies the spacing between elements in the array.


  • GraphicsSpacing->0 inserts no horizontal or vertical spacing, so that all adjacent rectangular areas in the array are shown abutting.
  • GraphicsSpacing->{h,v} specifies horizontal and vertical spacing to use.
  • GraphicsSpacing->s is equivalent to GraphicsSpacing->{s,s}.
  • The spacing is given in scaled coordinates, relative to each rectangular area in the array.
  • Example: a horizontal spacing of 0.1 yields an array in which the rectangular areas are separated horizontally by distances equal to 0.1 of their widths.
