 # Bug in set_yscale?

Hi

``for values smaller than 1, but the plot then shows large values (vertical lines) for the points which should have been in the linear range. My code is:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

f1 = np.loadtxt(‘someDataFile.txt’) # file has all y values smaller than 1

fig1 = plt.figure(1)

ax1.plot(f1[:, 0], f1[:, 1])

ax1.set_yscale(‘symlog’, linthreshy = 1e-3)
ax1.set_ylim(1e-4, 1)
ax1.autoscale(enable = True, axis = ‘x’, tight = True)

plt.draw()
plt.show()

···

Another and testable code is

import matplotlib
matplotlib.use(‘Qt4Agg’)
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

fig1 = plt.figure(1)
A = 10 + 9.999999999 * np.sin(2 * np.pi * np.arange(0.01, 1, 0.01))

ax1.plot(A)

ax1.set_yscale(‘symlog’, linthreshy = 1e-6)
ax1.set_ylim(0, 20) # change this to ax1.set_ylim(0, 0.7) for strange lines

fig2 = plt.figure(2)
ax2.plot(A)
ax2.set_yscale(‘log’)
ax2.set_ylim(0, 20)
ax2.autoscale(enable = True, axis = ‘both’, tight = True)

plt.draw()
plt.show()

Which does not show correct labels and the linear part is gone (only a straight line).
Does anyone have a solution for these problems?

This was a bug found fairly recently. In the case where the linthresh was less than 1.0:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=3081451&group_id=80706&atid=560720

I don’t know if the patch was backported to the maintenance branch, but I am fairly sure it would have been.

Hi

Thank you.
I installed the latest from svn and it now works.
