Axis label getting cutoff in plot with multiple axis

7 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to display a label to each axis, the only problem is the top x axis, the label is getting cutoff. If I put the image in full screen I am able to see it but I need to see it without manually modifying the size of the window and keping the text size the same.
This is my code:
clear; clc; clf; close all
x1 = [1 2 3 4 5];
x2 = [2 4 8 10 12];
y1 = [3 5 7 9 10];
y2 = [4 6 9 12 15];
figure
semilogy(x1, y1, 'ko-')
hold on
semilogy(x2, y2, 'bo-')
ax1 = gca;
ax1_pos = ax1.Position;
ax1.FontSize = 14;
ylabel('y1 label')
ax2 = axes('Position',ax1_pos,'XAxisLocation','top','YAxisLocation','right','Color','none') ;
ax2.FontSize = 14;
ax2.XLim = ax1.XLim ;
ax2.YLim = ax1.YLim ;
xlabel(ax1, 'x1 label')
xlabel(ax2, 'x2 label')
ylabel('y2 label')
I was wondering if somebody could catch something that I am missing or doing wrong.

You can set the Position of both axes at the end:
clear; clc; clf; close all
x1 = [1 2 3 4 5];
x2 = [2 4 8 10 12];
y1 = [3 5 7 9 10];
y2 = [4 6 9 12 15];
figure
semilogy(x1, y1, 'ko-')
hold on
semilogy(x2, y2, 'bo-')
ax1 = gca;
ax1_pos = ax1.Position;
ax1.FontSize = 14;
ylabel('y1 label')
ax2 = axes('Position',ax1_pos,'XAxisLocation','top','YAxisLocation','right','Color','none') ;
ax2.FontSize = 14;
ax2.XLim = ax1.XLim ;
ax2.YLim = ax1.YLim ;
xlabel(ax1, 'x1 label')
xlabel(ax2, 'x2 label')
ylabel('y2 label')
set([ax1 ax2],'Position',[0.13 0.1284 0.74 0.7432]) % adjust as necessary

Take a look at the last few lines of code below. Adjust factor until it looks ok.
clear; clc; clf; close all
x1 = [1 2 3 4 5];
x2 = [2 4 8 10 12];
y1 = [3 5 7 9 10];
y2 = [4 6 9 12 15];
figure
semilogy(x1, y1, 'ko-')
hold on
semilogy(x2, y2, 'bo-')
ax1 = gca;
ax1_pos = ax1.Position;
ax1.FontSize = 14;
ylabel('y1 label')
ax2 = axes('Position',ax1_pos,'XAxisLocation','top','YAxisLocation','right','Color','none') ;
ax2.FontSize = 14;
ax2.XLim = ax1.XLim ;
ax2.YLim = ax1.YLim ;
xlabel(ax1, 'x1 label')
xlabel(ax2, 'x2 label')
ylabel('y2 label')
factor = 0.85; % adjust as necessary (factor = 1 is the original size)
aspect_ratio = ax1_pos(4)/ax1_pos(3); % aspect ratio, to be kept constant
wh = factor*ax1_pos(3).*[1 aspect_ratio]; % new width and height
set([ax1 ax2],'Position',[0.5*(1-wh) wh]) % center the axes (with new width and height) in the figure
