You don't see any x ticks because the x plot range is only -0.5 to 1.0 and your nonzero ticks are entirely outside that range. This is a good example where it would be better not to use a legend. The legend only detracts the viewer's attention away from the information in the curves. It is much easier to just label the curves directly, and also easier on the viewer. For those who have DrawGraphics, here is my rendering of the plot. I use a Frame plot instead of an Axes plot to keep the tick labels away from the curves. I do draw the axes but in light gray and I put the axes behind the curves so that they don't interfere with the curves. I use fewer tick marks. More just unnecessarily clutter the plot. The two curves are labeled directly so that the eye is not drawn away from the main plot. Needs["DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`"] xyticks = CustomTicks[Identity, {-0.5, 1, 0.5, 5}]; toprightticks = CustomTicks[Identity, {-0.5, 1, 0.5, 5}, CTNumberFunction -> ("" &)]; Draw2D[ {Hue[0.6], DrawPolarR[Sin[x], {x, -Pi/2, Pi/2}], Hue[0.8], DrawPolarR[Cos[x], {x, -Pi/2, Pi/2}], Black, Text["Sin", {0.301989, 0.979283}, {-1, 0}], Text["Cos", {0.832366, 0.448907}, {-1, 0}]}, AspectRatio -> Automatic, Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {xyticks, xyticks, toprightticks, toprightticks}, Axes -> True, AxesStyle -> LightGray, AxesFront -> False, PlotRange -> {{-0.6, 1.1}, {-0.6, 1.1}}]; David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: abdou.oumaima at hotmail.com [mailto:abdou.oumaima at hotmail.com] First of All, I want to thank Mr Jean Marc Guillet and Mr Bob Hanlon for their help in my last post. Now I need to perfom my graphic presentation by using Ticks under PolarPlot as follow: Needs["Graphics`"]; ShowLegend[DisplayTogether[PolarPlot[Sin[x], {x, -Pi/2, Pi/2}, PlotStyle -> Hue[0.6]], PolarPlot[Cos[x], {x, Pi/2, 3 Pi/2}, PlotStyle -> Hue[0.8]], Ticks -> {{-Pi/2, 0, Pi/2, Pi, 3 Pi/2}, Automatic}, DisplayFunction -> Identity], {{{ Hue[0.6], "Sin(x)"}, {Hue[0.8], "Cos(x)"}}, LegendPosition -> {1.1, .2}, LegendSize -> {.8, .4}}]; I need seeing in x Axe -Pi/2, 0, Pi/2, Pi, 3P/2. Please how can I achieve this?! Any suggestions will be very welcommmmmmmmmmmm. Cheers.
