How to prevent plotted contents to spill outside of the axes lines

40 views (last 30 days)
set(gca, 'Layer', 'top')
I end up with this:
Is there a way to completely hide plotted contents that appear beyond the axes?

The property SizeData of a scatter plot is related to the area of the marker. So assuming you specify a circular marker, Matlab will plot circles centered at the data with a radius that can be computed from SizeData. So, for each data point, find the radius of the circular marker, compute the edge points locations (horizontal and vertical extensions of the marker), see if they exceeded the axis limits and discard the data point if so. This is unnecessarily complex in my opinion given that you just need to resize the axes to solve the issue.

One would think that the 'clipping' property of the axes object would take care of that, but I guess not.
I don't know if that's a very practical approach, especially for as many markers as you have. It might be better to just adjust your axes limits a bit instead.
