RE: Controlling axes labels in 3D plots

Do you have a specific example plot you could include in a posting. One that
illustrates the problem.

Mathematica graphics is somewhat bad, because although one can exert tight
control on anything that appears within a Frame or bounding box, one loses
precise control on the various labels that appear outside the bounding box.

There may be solutions but they may be specific to the case and one would
have to see what that case is.

Hi MathGroup,
It is possible to control the position and the direction of the axes labels
in a
3D plot? The label must stay parallel to its axis, whatever the value of the
"ViewPoint" used. Any help or hint, please. Thanks in advance.
