I want to make some mods to a few selected tick labels.

For example, if I do

  label = axes.yaxis.get_major_ticks()[2].label
  label.set_fontsize(size)
  label.set_rotation('vertical')

the font size and the orientation of the tick label is changed. However, if try
 
  label.set_text('Foo')


the tick label is *not* modified.

Any clues?

Best regards,

Mads
