Problem

How do I plot objects, such as lines or points, outside of the axes?

SolutionSet the clipping property to off. Example:

clf x= -10*pi : 0.5 : 10*pi; y= sin(x); inside=plot(x,y+x,'-r'); hold on outside=plot(x,y,'-*b'); hold off %Now set the axis limits xlim([min(x),max(x)]) ylim([0,30]) set(gca,'XTickLabel',[]) %Now make blue points visible outside the axes set(outside,'Clipping','off')

If the above fails to work, then close your figure window and repeat the process in a new window.
