Martin; I can't solve your problem, but may I suggest that you try following your Plot statement with an Options[%,"option name"] statement, which will lisst the option assignments as Mathematica actually creates them. I have a similar problem with the following Show[] statement. Notice how the output for the Options[] call shows that Mathematica (in this case, 3.0.2) inserts a PlotStyle->Automatic assignment after my manual assignment, which cancels out some of my assignments (at least that's what I think it did), and resulted in a plot with default tick thicknesses (not what I wanted). Show[{cdPlot,flPlot,combFitPlot},Frame->{True,True,False,False}, FrameLabel->{"M Urea","Delta-G0 (kCal/Mol)"}, FrameStyle->{{Thickness[.003 ],FrameTicks->Thickness[.002 ]},{ Thickness[.003 ],FrameTicks->Thickness[.002 ]}}, DisplayFunction->$DisplayFunction ] Options[%,FrameStyle] {FrameStyle \[Rule]{{Thickness[0.003],FrameTicks\[Rule]Thickness[0.002]},{ Thickness[0.003],FrameTicks\[Rule]Thickness[0.002]}}, FrameStyle\[Rule]Automatic} So, perhaps the Options statement will reveal what Mathematica is up to, in your case, as well. -----Original Message----- From: Martin Stockhammer <martin.stockhammer at visualanalysis.com> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg19399] [mg19372] strange problem with tickmarks >Hi, > >i am working with Mathematica 4.0. >I plot the following function: >Plot[x*3, {x, 0, 10}, Frame -> {True, True, True, True}, > FrameLabel -> {"a", "b", "c", "d"}, > FrameTicks -> {{{12, > "tick1", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.], >AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}, {{17, > "tick2", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.], > AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}, {{12, > "tick3", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.], > AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}, {{12, > "tick4", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.], >AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}}] > >The problem is now, that the tickmark on the left edge does not appear. >If I set >a number (for example 1.7) as label, the tickmark can be seen. >It seems as if the graphics-directive of the string overwrites the >graphic directive >of the tickmark. >The problem is specific for Mathematica 4.0.
