Sorry if this has been covered, I looked through the forum and couldn't find anything.


I am using very similar data for all graphs (I even just copy the graph for use in the next plot), but sometimes the resulting y-axis scientific notation will be of the format 1.0x10^-3, 2.0x10^-3, and 3.0x10^-3 while other times it is 1x10^-3, 2x10^-3, and 3x10^-3. Is there something I can select to let me choose either format?

thanks![/img]

1.0, 2.0 should only be used if there are numbers there also with a decimal. So for example, if you have

1.0 x 10^-3
1.5 x 10^-3
2.0 x 10^-3

If there are no numbers that need a decimal, it should not be used. Can you send me a sample document? Also, are you using the latest beta?
