I use the following code to draw a parametric plot, with Epilog to add a point, and text using Graphics.

graf7 = ParametricPlot[  { delta18[t], delta2D[t]}, {t, 0, 800},
   Epilog -> {Red, PointSize[Large], 
     Point[{ delta18[0] , delta2D[0]} ], 
     Line[{{20, 160}, {-50, -400}}] } ,
   AspectRatio -> 1, PlotLabel -> "d18O vs dD (g/kgda)",
   PlotStyle -> Thick, PlotRange -> All, ImageSize -> Medium

  Graphics[Text["Dot is at surface", {-10.6, -89.4}]],
  Graphics[Text["Black line is MWL ", {-10.6, -89.6}]]  ]

For now, it works fine. I experimented with the equations that find the original arguments, delta18[t] and delta2D[t], so their value ranges change drastically, and the inserted text is no longer in the plot region.

How can I make the text appear at a relative position within the plot, so it is never outside the plot region?


You must use Scaled coordinates to position the text.


 Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, max},
  PlotRange -> 1.1 {-1, 1},
  Epilog -> {Text["sine", Scaled[{.2, .8}]]}],
 {max, 1, 20}
