It is helpful for my dissertation

Alexandre Schimel

same comment as Murray, useful but unfortunately not adapted for zooming. Refer to solution Number: 1-19PZ1 to correct (

Raúl Rosa

Excellent to change in only one line the tick number format.

A.J. Olson

Good utility. I agree, this should be included in Matlab though. I don't drag or pan much, so this should be just fine for me!

Murray Thomson

Very useful, but not compatable with zoom and pan (drag).

Marc Freed

I had a vague idea how to program this myself but it would have taken me several hours to do it. I appreciate not having to reinvent the wheel and will derive great utility from it in the future.

R. L.

A fuction that should actually be included in Matlab. Like this just a workaround, but works fine.
