I want to fix my axis on my graph using the property inspector but I don’t know how to. I want to show the negative limits of my graph so the bars on the chart are longer. Any ideas? (I am a mac user)

Hello thanks for the help! I used the rulers and changed the limits from there, however when I have a negative limit, my graph leaves everything below 0 blank. I would like to show the negative side of the graph as well but I’m not sure how.

Hello, this can be done in the 'Rulers' section of the property inspector.
Just a note of caution: It is a bad idea to change anything in your graph manually like this. It will create more work in the future for you (if you need to plot it again with different parameters) or for people who use your code.
Better is to use the get and set functions.
set(gca,'ylim',[-300 300]) % or whichever negative values you need
