Use a frame. Plot[x,{x,0,1}, Frame->True,Axes\[Rule]False, FrameLabel->{"\nx","long y-axis label\n"}, PlotLabel->"This is a long plot label\n"]; Alternatively, stack the words. Plot[x,{x,0,1}, AxesLabel->{"x"," long\ny-axis\n label"}, PlotLabel->"This is a long\n plot label\n"]; Bob Hanlon ---- Alex <axel.kowald at rub.de> wrote: > Hi everybody, > > this sounds simple, but I can't figure it out. > How can I rotate th y-axis label, so that it is drawn vertically and > not horizontally ?? > The horizontal orientation often interferes with my PlotLabel and > therefore I would like to rotate it. > > Any ideas ? > > Many thanks, > > Axel
