Kate, Could you give us your actual Plot statement and any other initializations one needs with it? Copy and paste it into the posting. If it looks strange when pasted, convert the Input cells to InputForm by placing the cursor in the cell and pressing Shift-Ctrl-I. Then copy and paste. David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Kate Yoak [mailto:kyoak at oversee.net] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net When plotting functions, I often find Mathematica getting bogged down in a small range of values, and leaving important parts of the curve off. For example, when plotting a beta probability distribution, I get a plot that covers 1x10^-10.. 4x10^-10, and doesn't go higher. I tried Ticks(r){Automatic, {0,0.5,1}} - all that did is skip the tickmarks. Then PlotRegion->{{0,1}, {0,1}} did not accomplish anything. How do I tell it to adjust the scale? Thank you! Kate
