 [Matplotlib-users] error bars getting cut off when plotting From: per freem - 2009-09-11 18:04:16 ```hi all, i have the following simple plot using the 'errorbars' function. when i plot it, one of the error bars is cut off: from numpy import * from scipy import * from mpl_toolkits.axes_grid.axislines import SubplotZero fig = plt.figure() ax = SubplotZero(fig, 3, 2, 1) fig.add_subplot(ax) ax.axis["xzero"].set_visible(True) for k in ["bottom", "top", "right"]: ax.axis[k].set_visible(False) m = array([0.8382035000000001, 0.81685835000000007]) sd = array([0.18543833, 0.12603507]) lw = 1.2 msize = 3 plt.errorbar([1, 2], m, yerr=sd, fmt='-s', markersize=msize, linewidth=lw) tm = .8 lower_y = max(tm-.2, 0) upper_y = min(tm+.4, 1) ytickvals = arange(lower_y, upper_y + .1, .1) plt.xlim([0, 3]) plt.yticks(ytickvals) plt.ylim([lower_y, upper_y]) plt.savefig('test.pdf') when i plot it, the top error bar of the first data point gets cut off. this error bar should be at location: 0.8382035000000001+0.18543833 which slightly exceeds the ylimit of 1. since the y value here is a probability, i dont want the plot to have labels on it that exceed 1, since that does not make sense. is there any way to allow more room for the y axis without plotting values greater than 1? this is only for the purpose of errorbars. again, these data were just various probabilities, and so they never exceed 1. thanks. ```
