Hi I need to use the symlog yscale in my graph, I have a lot of data

that needs to be displayed linearly, with a small fraction at the upper

end of the range that needs to be displayed in log scale due to its

distance from the main data. The symlog scale works great, however I'd

like to adjust the actual vertical graph position where it crosses from

linear to log (not the threshold), because right now only ~25% of the y

space is being given to linear, and I'd like it to be more like 80%. Is

this possible?

Thanks!

Isn't linthreshy what you are looking for? It denotes the range where the scale is linear. So, if it is 25, then from -25 to 25 the scale will be linear. After 25, it will be log.

Maybe I am missing something in your description?

Hi Ben,

No unfortunately linthreshy only controls the crossover point from linear to log scale, it does not give you control over where this occurs on the figure's y coordinates. I've attached a picture to explain, currently the linear part of the graph is only being given around 25% of the vertical space, I'd like to reverse that and give linear ~75% and log at the top only the remaining 25%. Is this possible? I've been digging around in the SymmetricalLogScale and SymmetricalLogLocator classes and can't even tell how this range is allocated.

Thanks in advance!!
