Oops again because previously tics was not specified and now logtic is not specified, so your examples still don't work. In any case, the Presentations package does have a CustomTicks command that allows log scales with any combination of labeled and unlabeled ticks and complete control over the tick sizes, positionings and labeling format. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: M.Roellig [mailto:markus.roellig at googlemail.com] Hi, oops! Typo on my side. The examples should read: LogLogPlot[x, {x, 10^-3, 10^5}, Ticks -> logtic] LogLogPlot[x, {x, 10^-3, 10^15}, Ticks -> logtic] LogLogPlot[x, {x, 10^-3, 10^35}, Ticks -> logtic] since i named the function logtic :) On side remark: The function is not working well if the min and max values are less thansay a few dex apart, e.g. compare: LogLogPlot[x, {x, 100, 700}, Ticks -> logtic] (* with standard tic function *) LogLogPlot[x, {x, 100, 700}, Ticks -> Automatic] My function reasonably places the subticks, but fails in labeling so you get a plot with nice but meaningless ticks. The standard labeling algorithm is better here, but still fails in placing the sub(sub)ticks. I will try to improve it, but feel free to send me your ideas. On the strange uneven tick lengths: >Looks uneven to me as well, but since the ticks are very small, this >may be a pixel rounding problem. Your ticks seem to be a bit uneven as >well. That's true and this is like it is supposed to be, because I use the exact same tick lengths like the standard LogPlot, This seems to be a rendering problem, not a problem of the Graphics Primitives.
