Does everything work correctly if it is vertical? In other words, use bar() and set the y-axis to log scale? An example script would be useful.

No, it doesn’t appear to work as a vertical bar chart, either.

I’ve attached a test case below. The results I get running it with the X-axis as log are:

Commenting out the call to ax.set_xscale(‘log’) gives me:

Thanks!
