Hello -- sometimes when I plot a function Mathematica decides to put the origin of the coordinate system in a spot where I don't want it. The natural fix seems to be the option AxesOrigin. For instance, Plot[ugly[x],{x,a,b},AxesOrigin->{0,0}] Simple enough. However, there are times when Mathematica appears to be trying to place the origin of the coordinate system where I want it, but it doesn't print out the axis lines near the region of my origin of choice. It's as if it recognizes where I want the origin, but it doesn't want to print out the axes in the normal manner. It's hard to explain in words...here's a graphical illustration Unwanted Origin = {1,1} (Mathematica's initial choice): | | | | |__________ (1,1) When I use AxesOrigin->{0,0} | | | | __________ (0,0) Note how Mathematica curiously omits segments of the axis lines near the origin of my choice. Has anyone else out there experienced this? How may I remedy it? Thanks a million, AC
