Hi Robert, Plot[Sin[x]/x, {x, 0.01, 4\[Pi]}, AxesLabel -> {HoldForm[\[Tau] = t/T], HoldForm[Sin[\[Tau]]/\[Tau]]}, FormatType -> TraditionalForm, Frame -> False] works fine with Mathematica 3 and 4 Hope that helps Jens Robert wrote: > > hello! > > I can't get any fractions as labels on axes, e.g. > > Plot[Sin[t],{t,0,2 Pi}, > AxesLabel->{None,HoldForm[TraditionalForm[t/T]]}] > > doesn't work. with "why the beep" I get the answer: > > " the stretchable character xxx in the xxx font has a repeating piece > that is zero size ", > > but if I change the font, it still doesn't work. right now I have a > mathematica-book on my desk, where much more complicated examples are > shown, so in principle it should work. has anybody an idea what I do > wrong? > > thanks, robert
