Great thank you.
One more question. I also want to change the tick mark attributes like
color, fontsize, rotation etc. I used these lines of code:
# set x-axes tick label attributes
# set y-axes tick label attributes
I get an error because get_ticklabels() returns an instance of label
strings, not the strings themselves. How can I convert these into a
useful string so the above code works? Or is there a better way to do

See the recent thread "transparent markerfacecolors"
Basically, this is a bug but you can work around it with scatter.

You can do this by setting a custom ticker.locator for the axis that
you don't want autoscaled, following the examples major_minor_demo*.py
and Chapter 5 of the user's guide.
