Hi Aaron, > I guess my subject says it all. > I can hide the ticks themselves my making them transparent, > but that also makes the labels disappear. How to fix this? You need to look at the variations of Ticks[]. Given the plot plt = Plot[Sin[\[Pi] x] , {x, -\[Pi], \[Pi]}] we can make it look a little better after defining the ticks using ptik = {#, #} & /@ Range[-\[Pi], \[Pi], \[Pi]/2]; (* Pi scale *) vtik = {#, #} & /@ Range[-1, 1, 1]; (* visible *) itik = {#, "", 0} & /@ Range[-1, 1, .1]; (* length = 0 => invisible *) ytik = Join[vtik, itik]; and use them plt = Plot[Sin[\[Pi] x] , {x, -\[Pi], \[Pi]}, FrameTicks -> {{ytik, None}, {ptik, None}}] You could also play with style for particular ticks. Regards, Dave.
