If you do not specify no Axes are to be drawn when using Frame->True whether or not you see the line you describe will depend on specifics of the data being plotted and the setting of AxesOrigin. If the data combined with the setting of AxesOrigin would cause the axes to be drawn very near frame, drawing of the axes is suppressed. In any other case, the axes are drawn Compare the plot you get with: ListPlot[Join[{{1, 0}, {0, 1}}, RandomReal[{0, 1}, {10, 2}]], Frame -> True] to ListPlot[Join[{{1, 0}, {0, 1}}, RandomReal[{0, 1}, {10, 2}]], Frame -> True, AxesOrigin -> {0, .5}] I've intentionally designed the data set so the extreme points will lie on an axes with origin {0,0}, the natural choice for an origin when the data contains points near {0,0}. This forces the frame to be drawn very near where the axes would be drawn if there where no frame. Consequently, no axes is drawn. The second plot chooses an origin guaranteed to be near the mean of the y values. Consequently, a horizontal line appears. >Other info: Axes->False will remove the line. Right. Now you have specifically told Mathematica not to draw the axes. >However, this also >prevents the (ab)use of AxesOrigin to set one of the corners of the >Frame while leaving the rest automatic. I do not understand what you are trying to do here at all and consequently don't see why explicitly specifying no axes are to be drawn is a problem -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
