Thank you Justin,

It is working but how can I adjust x-axis. My figure y-axis is ok, and x-axis has not time.

Best regards,

You need to increase the size of the y-axis relative to x by using an .m2p file 
with a suitable ybox/xbox ratio.  The default output is generally very distorted 
because there are orders of magnitudes more frames (x-axis) than there are 
protein residues (y-axis) in most simulations.
