For a histogram or graph with large axis label values (xx.yy x 10^N), is it possible to move the 10^N from the end of the axis into each individual label?
Using the x-axis as an example:
|--------------|--------------|--------------| x 10^3
0 1.5 3.0 4.5
0 1.5x10^3 3.0x10^3 4.5x10^3
(This is an odd request, but a journal editor is insisting that I change this in my plots prior to publication.)
That’s not implemented that way. x10 is always drawn at the en of the axis.
Now implemented in 5.34 and trunk
- New static function to change the position of the "power of 10"
near the axis. A static function is used instead of data members
TAxis in order to keep the
TAxis class small. Adding two
floating point numbers in that class (in fact in
have a none negligible effect on the Root files’ sizes as there is
at least two axis per histogram and that there is often 1000th
histograms in a single file.
So we choose to follow the same mechanism as for the
static method. The new function is:
TGaxis::SetExponentOffset(-0.01, 0.01, "y"); // X and Y offset for Y axis
TGaxis::SetExponentOffset(-0.05, 0.01, "x"); // Y and Y offset for X axis
I see that it is possible to offset the Exponent for the X and Y axis. Is it possible to have this also for the Z-axis (e.g. for a TH2F drawn with colors)?
Thanks a lot
It is implemented for x and y axis only.
Thanks, that is what I understood as well. So no solution let’s say.
I acknowledge that this is only aesthetics, so no high priority.
in case someone touches code nearby in the future, it would be great
to have it also for the Z-axis.
May be it is better to fill a Jira report to not forget. I had no time to look at it recently.
