I am going to guess that you are referring to the fact that the range of the vertical axis runs from 0.86 to 1.01. This can be fixed by using the option PlotRange as follows: Plot[t - (t - 1) UnitStep[t - 1], {t, 0, 5}, PlotRange -> All] The algorithms that the kernel uses to select a vertical plot range work for most cases, but functions with jumps like this sometimes give strange results. -- P.J.
