When drawing a histogram with errorbars (at least with drawing option
"E") points are clipped (removed and not drawn) if the central value of the point to be drawn falls outside of the axis range, even if the length of the error bar to be drawn extends inside of the axis range.
Is there any way to prevent this clipping behaviour?
Reason being that for some datasets, the central value of some points may lie a long way from the typical spread of points. Such points which are far from the typical spread of points often also have large uncertainties/errorbars.
In such cases, it is misleading to simply not draw the point. Although the central value cannot be seen, it is often very useful to be able to see the end of the errorbar, as this indicates that a point exists beyond the range of the axis being shown.
Of course, if the errorbar does not extend into the drawing range, then neither the central value, nor the end of the errorbar will be drawn.
In such cases, it would be extremely useful to be able to draw a
^ symbol at the x-axis location of the point to indicate that the point is not seen within the current axis range. This is not something which is currently conventional (to my knowledge) however it would be a very nice new feature.
