I'm hoping someone can help me with the following problem. I have a .p file for generating a .eps file using gnuplot. I want both the y-axis label and the y-axis tics to be formatted using LaTeX. Getting this done is no problem. The problem I am having is that having both of these options creates an unreasonable amount of white-space between the label and tics, which squashes the actual plot. Setting the offset for either the y label or the tics just moves them; the plot does not resize itself accordingly. Does anyone know how to fix this issue?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
