# How can I replace the three YLABEL (degree of membership) to only one?

Dear Mathcoders,
I am digging into this issue, I just want to:
1. remove the three independent YLABELs (degree of membership)
2. then, re-write only one "degree of membership" that covers the three inputs
3. reduce the space among the three of them horizontally

I would think that you could just skip your ylabel and use an annotation textbox in stead
Moving your axes up and down is managed in the .Position(2) of your individual axes.
Does this work for you?
fh = figure;
ah(1) = subplot(3,1,1);
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),sin(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318)));
xlabel("Sine wave")
ah(2) = subplot(3,1,2);
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),cos(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318)));
xlabel("Cosine wave")
ah(3) = subplot(3,1,3);
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),cos(linspace(-16*pi,pi*16,318)));
hold on;
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),cos(linspace(-15*pi,pi*16,318)));
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),cos(linspace(-14*pi,pi*16,318)));
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),cos(linspace(-13*pi,pi*16,318)));
plot(linspace(-8*pi,pi*8,318),cos(linspace(-12*pi,pi*16,318)));
xlabel("Waves")
str = "This is a string"; % Define your ylabel
tb = annotation(fh,"textbox","position",[ah(1).Position(1)*0.8 0.18 0.5 0.3],...
"EdgeColor",'none',"String",str,"Rotation",90,"FitBoxToText",'on','FontSize',18);
ah(1).Position(2) = ah(1).Position(2) - 0.03; % Move the top axis down a bit
ah(2).Position(2) = ah(2).Position(2) - 0.02; % Move the mid axis down a smaller bit
ah(3).Position(2) = ah(3).Position(2) - 0.01; % Move the bottom axis down a smaller bit still Tony Castillo on 5 May 2022
Ok, thanks!...
