Hi all,

i have a lot of label entrys, which i want to put above the figure. My

problem is, i use 2 yaxes so a simple axes([]) call isn`t working.

Plotting graphs with only one x and y axes, using i.e.

"axes([0.1,0.1,0.9,0.8)]" worked perfect. Printing the legends for the

plots is working too, but the legend is above the figure, see example

code below. So how do i shrink the figure size so the legend isn`t

overlapping the graphs?

### Example code ###

import numpy as np

import matplotlib.pylab as mpl

fig = mpl.figure()

ax1 = fig.add_subplot(111)

# Using axes won`t work here

# mpl.axes([0.1,0.1,0.9,0.7])

x = np.linspace(1,10,10)

y = np.linspace(1,10,10)

ax1.plot(x,y**2,'g-',label='y(x)=x**2')

ax1.legend(bbox_to_anchor=(0.,0.92,1.,.1),

loc=10,ncol=1,mode='expand',borderaxespad=0.)

ax2 = ax1.twinx()

ax2.plot(x,y,'b.',label='y(x)=x')

ax2.legend(bbox_to_anchor=(0.,1.,1.,.1),

loc=10,ncol=1,mode='expand',borderaxespad=0.)

mpl.show()

Answer: Because we read from top to bottom, left to right!
