Hi everyone,

I'd like to plot a figure with 'dropped spines', in which abscissa and ordinate do not cross each other and serve as a sort of scale bars (you can see an example in http://matplotlib.org/examples/pylab_examples/spine_placement_demo.html).

For that I'm set the arguments xaxisat and yaxisat of the class graph.graph.graphxy to values that lie below the min values assigned to each axis. Everything works as expected. The only downside is that I have to specify the offset of the spines (axes) in data coordinates, and I'd prefer to use visual coordinates (say, I want the spines to be 4mm apart from the canvas).

Is there a way to specify the offset of the dropped spines in visual coordinates?

Thanks a lot for your attention and help.
