I found a typo at "http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/users/navigation_toolbar.html"

"If you press ‘x’ or ‘y’ while panning the motion will be contrained to the x or y axis, respectively."

Thank you. Now it is fixed.

BTW, do you know how to constrain the panning function to left/right programmatically? I'm try to make a logic analyzer.

I don't know offhand, but I don't think that capability is in place. I find holding down a key while panning to be a bit awkward, so I am also interested in alternatives.

Finally, is this the best place to post my questions? (I suspect not...)

Yes, matplotlib-users is the right place. I assume you intended to "reply-to-all" on that last one, so intended it to go to the list. Apparently the settings on this list are unusual in that one must explicitly "reply-to-all"; it is not automatic that one's reply goes to the list.

Matplolib story straight, before I plunge in)Numpy is the common core, providing N-dimensional arrays and math;

matplotlib is a plotting library, using numpy; scipy is a collection

of math/science functionality, also using numpy.But don't forget ipython, which provides a nice interactive shell:
