Hello Marcus!

You want to have the x-axis in the left direction, but keep the y-axis in the top-direction?

I would do something like that, and it's not "lots of workaround" if you think about the fact that it wouldn't be possible with concurrent programs:

des = Plot[Log[Abs[x + 3]], {x, -8, 8}]; 

Show[des /. {a_, b_} -> {-a, b}, 
  Ticks -> {(Ticks /. FullOptions[des])[[1]] /. 
     {a_, b_, c_, d_} -> {a, If[b != "", -b, ""]}, 
    (Ticks /. FullOptions[des])[[2]]}]

Hi group,

it seems that it is not possible to invert the x axis
of a plot in a simple way, so that the function is plotted
from e.g. 1 to -1 (PlotRange->{1,-1} does not work).

Only lots of workarounds.

Am I right?
