Hi Folks:

 

Any idea how to eliminate empty space before 0 on the x-axis as shown in the black box in the image below? I have a big  4 by 4 panel plot and eliminating empty space from each panel would help reduce the size of the plot quite bit.

ods graphics/width=14.5 in height=10in;
proc sgpanel data=four1;
panelby SORT/ novarname columns=4 rows=4;
styleattrs DATACONTRASTCOLORS=(BLUE GREEN RED);
series  x=FU y=cr/lineattrs=(pattern=solid thickness=2) GROUP=STAGE NAME='KEY'; 
scatter x=FU y=y2/markerattrs=(size=0) datalabel=y2 DATALABELPOS=BOTTOM;
colaxis label='label' min=1 max=100 grid values=(0 to 60 by 5);
rowaxis label='label' refticks=(values) fitpolicy=thin grid  values=(0 to 1 by 0.01);
keylegend 'KEY'/  title="categories" position=top;
/*INSET N/position=TOPRIGHT;*/
FORMAT y2 5.2; 
title ' ';
run;

Hi @Cruise,

 

Use the OFFSETMIN= option of the COLAXIS statement: Its value (between 0 and 1) determines that "empty space before 0," so zero would be optimal in terms of space saving:

colaxis label='label' min=1 max=100 grid values=(0 to 60 by 5) offsetmin=0;

There's a similar option OFFSETMAX= for the other end of the axis and both options are available for the ROWAXIS statement, too.

Thanks for your response. But it didn't remove the empty space.

Perfect! no white space now leaving my plot more compact. Thanks!
