Left-aligned and centered title

Dear users,

I would like label my subplots with a horizontally left-aligned

letter (wanted by the journal) and the normal, centered axes title,
which should both be vertically in line. The following example does
not work:

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

  import numpy as np



  fig, ax1 = plt.subplots()

  x = np.linspace(1,10)

  y = (sin(x))

  ax1.plot(x,y)



  def subplot_label(ax, letter, title):

  ��� title = ax.set_title(title)

  ��� pos = title.get_position()

  ��� va = title.get_va()

  ��� ax.text(0, pos[1], letter, transform=ax.transAxes,

verticalalignment=va)

  �

  subplot_label(ax1, 'a)', 'This text is not aligned with the

label’)

Which property of the axes title am I missing?

Thank you for your help

Florian,

I think that you need to add the ax.titleOffsetTrans to the ax.transAxes transformation.

ax.text(0,pos[1],letter,transform=ax.transAxes+ax.titleOffsetTrans,va=va)

Thank you both a lot,

no idea why I've overseen this.
