Here is the minimal working example that gives me problems with Mathematica 10.4 on OSX

Labeled[LogLogPlot[x, {x, 10^-5, 1}], "Test"]
Export["test.pdf", %]
Export["test.png", %%]

In the PDF output, there is a mismatch in the alignment of the ticks labels of the x axis with a superscript 10^-5 and 10^-4 compared to the other labels.

If I export only the plot, without using Labeled, the PDF is correct.

Here is the (correct) PNG image


Here is the PDF with misplaced ticks labels


Can anybody reproduce it? Any possible workaround?

  • $\begingroup$ I am not sure that I understand the problem as I do not see any misalignment. There is a difference in the plots in size and that is probably why you have 10^-5 on the vertical axis in the bottom plot but otherwise I cannot see any difference. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @leosenko sorry, I'll edit the question to make the point clearer. The misalignment is in the x axis labels. Notice that the two labels with the exponent are higher than the others in the PDF. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 31, 2016 at 13:51
  • $\begingroup$ I can see it now. I can reproduce it as well in Mathematica 10.0.2. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It does work correctly on Windows 10 - Mathematica 10.4. $\endgroup$
