Hi all
I have a zoom problem when plotting in two x-linked axes and would be very happy for any suggestions to solve the problem.
Here's an example:
x1 = 5:10;
y1 = 5:-1:0;
x2 = 0:10;
y2 = 0:10;
hl1 = line(x1,y1,'Color','r');
ax1 = gca;
ax2 = axes('Position',get(ax1,'Position'),...
hl2 = line(x2,y2,'Color','k','Parent',ax2);
linkaxes([ax1 ax2],'x')
The problem in the resulting plot is that xlim goes from 5-10 and not 0-10 as it should. Even when I try to zoom out the zooming only goes as far as xlim([5 10]) thus leaving out some of the (x2,y2)-data in the plot.
When plotting (x1,y1) in ax2 and (x2,y2) in ax1 the problem no longer exists, however, I would like to find a different solution as this solution is not really an easy implementation in my actual application.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Best, SP
