There is probably a simple answer to this, but I don't see it. How can I pad the axis limits automatically? For instance, in the below example, the x axis limits are the data points and the y limit is close. I want to have a function that pads the axis limit at least, by say, 10% of the range of x past the last data point without having to take my x values and calculate some sensible x limit. Is this possible? import matplotlib.pyplot as plt fig = plt.figure() ax = fig.add_subplot(111) x = [1,2,3] y = [8125, 9754, 10855] ax.plot(x,y,marker='D',ms=12) plt.show()
