Steve, Indeciding the size of the picture specified ticks are not taken into account - we have to make room for them: Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {{0, Pi/2, Pi, 3 Pi/2, 2 Pi}, {-2, 0, 2}}, PlotRange -> {-2.1, 2.1}] -- Allan --------------------- Allan Hayes Mathematica Training and Consulting Leicester UK www.haystack.demon.co.uk hay at haystack.demon.co.uk Voice: +44 (0)116 271 4198 Fax: +44 (0)870 164 0565 <qualsystems*nospam* at mindspring.com> wrote in message news:af6ijd$lmn$1 at smc.vnet.net... > Can anyone help with this ? > > Here is the FrameTick example from the online help. > > Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {{0, Pi/2, > Pi, 3 Pi/2, 2 Pi}, {-1, 0, 1}}] > > So far, so good. > > Now what if you want to change the y axis FrameTicks so that they > range from say -2 to 2 instead of -1 to 1.
