Is there a step-by-step method on the
website that shows how to do this?

Hej

I want to include a mathematical expression but want to position it
outside the graphs box. I want it above the graph, so i tried to set it as title but there is to less space between the title and the graphs box.

how can that be done? how to set a position outside the box?

I tried eg:

plt.title(r'$F(x)=p*\frac{1}{s1\sqrt{2\pi}}$', fontsize=20)

thanks

figtext will let you place text relative to the figure, not the axes:

Hello again I tried:

plt.figtext(0, 1.2, r'$F(x)=p*\frac{1}{s1\sqrt{2\pi}}$', fontsize=20)

but then the text is outside the printed area and therefore not displayed.
Does that mean that the printed area has to be changed as well?

Thanks, but I guess I can't install matplotlib since I can't build it,
since I don't have VS2003.
