I am trying to plot two separate quantities on the same graph using twiny as follows:
fig = figure() ax = fig.add_subplot(111) ax.plot(T, r, 'b-', T, R, 'r-', T, r_geo, 'g-') ax.set_yscale('log') ax.annotate('Approx. sea level', xy=(Planet.T_day*1.3,(Planet.R)/1000), xytext=(Planet.T_day*1.3, Planet.R/1000)) ax.annotate('Geostat. orbit', xy=(Planet.T_day*1.3, r_geo), xytext=(Planet.T_day*1.3, r_geo)) ax.set_xlabel('Rotational period (hrs)') ax.set_ylabel('Orbital radius (km), logarithmic') ax.set_title('Orbital charts for ' + Planet.N, horizontalalignment='center', verticalalignment='top') ax2 = ax.twiny() ax2.plot(v,r,'k-') ax2.set_xlabel('Linear speed (ms-1)') show()
and the data is presented fine, but I am having the problem that the figure title is overlapping with the axes labels on the secondary x axis so that it’s barely legible (I wanted to post a picture example here, but I don’t have a high enough rep yet).
I’d like to know if there’s a straightforward way to just shift the title directly up a few tens of pixels, so that the chart looks prettier.
Now we will see solution for issue: Python Matplotlib figure title overlaps axes label when using twiny
I’m not sure whether it is a new feature in later versions of matplotlib, but at least for 1.3.1, this is simply:
This also works for
plt.suptitle(), but not (yet) for
