I would like to place the ylabel in a matplotlib plot horizontally and with the same distance to the y-axis as the y-tick labels. When using axis coordinate
"right" horizontal alignment, they are (almost) snug with the axis:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np x = np.array([0.0, 1.0]) y = x plt.plot(x, y) ax = plt.gca() ylabel = plt.ylabel("xxxx\nxxx", horizontalalignment="right", multialignment="right") plt.gca().yaxis.set_label_coords(0.0, 0.5) ylabel.set_rotation(0) plt.show()
I want the
xs to have the same distance from the axis as the
0.6 in the plot.
