I'm not using graphs specifically, I just mean to flip the y orientation of general rendering to a canvas.

Hi Hans,

You can use the reverse flag of the axis, see http://pyx.sourceforge.net/manual/axis.html#graph.axis.axis.linear, or fix the axis range manually and set max to be smaller than min (which sounds a little crazy, but it perfectly does the trick as well).

HTH, André
