Not exactly sure what you're after, but some combination of PlotRange, AspectRatio, and ImageSize should do it; e.g., Plot[Sin[10*x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}, PlotRange -> {{-Pi,3*Pi},Automatic}, AspectRatio -> Automatic, ImageSize -> 500] ----- Selwyn Hollis http://www.math.armstrong.edu/faculty/hollis (edit reply-to to reply) On Jan 25, 2004, at 3:04 AM, Harold Noffke wrote: > MathGroup: > > I have a function I want to Plot between 0.5 and 1.0 with a "stretched > out" x-axis.
