Thank you David. I think PiScale was the word I was looking for. Like Murray, I also can't find it in my help system. So, this was most likely what I was looking for. Murray.now that I know what word to look for, I searched the newsgroups archives and found that PiScale was mentioned as "undocumented" as far back as 1996. So, it's apparently not likely for the next version either. :>) http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/1996/Jan/msg00024.html Appears to me that PiScale can not divide any lower than Pi/2. I can make five ticks between 0 & 2 Pi (inclusive) PiScale[0, 2*Pi, 5] {0., 0}, {1.57, Pi/2}, {3.14, Pi}, {4.71, (3*Pi)/2}, {6.28, 2*Pi}} But it won't go any lower... PiScale[0, 2*Pi, 9] Or... PiScale[0, 2*Pi, 8] Out: (same 5 output as above) Thank you very much for your help. There's nothing wrong with making a "Pi Scale" manually, but I hope that a nice version of PiScale gets moved to the Kernel in the next version. Dana
