Yep. GLIMMIX has some nice features (Oliver be praised). I hope some
of the lsmeans stuff find their way to other procedures. Even though
GLIMMIX is very robust and will solve lots of problems.

I guess it's a matter of preference. Once I get things the way I want,
I just save the program and move on to something else. If it worked
once it will work again.

A couple responders mentioned this option. I haven't found much
documentation for ODS stat graphics, but did find the RESET option in a
SUGI paper (which I should have looked at before I posted). I don't use
ODS much, if a client wants prettier output I wish them the best. :-)
