Usually on a plot the vertical scale is on the left, and the horizontal scale is on the bottom. How to make the vertical scale appear on both left and right, and similarly the horizontal scale on both top and bottom? This just makes my life easier when after exporting the file I can still see the scale even if I zoom-in the right or top region of the plot.

    $\begingroup$ @MichaelE2 I have yet to vote to close, but allow me to disagree. Just above the options table in the Details section of both Plot and ListPlot is the statement "... has the same options as Graphics, with the following additions and changes". $\endgroup$ – rcollyer Sep 13 '16 at 14:38

    $\begingroup$ @rcollyer You're free to disagree. :) In my mind, it is a borderline case, and our comments mean that people will at least think about it before deciding. $\endgroup$ – Michael E2 Sep 13 '16 at 14:56

    $\begingroup$ @rcollyer You remind me of a time in 1993 when I told myself to remember that lesson about looking at both Plot and Graphics. I can fix the date because I remember the house we lived in. I wish the close reason read "can be found in the documentation (and easily understood)". Sometimes I vote that way. You may convince me yet in the present case. $\endgroup$ – Michael E2 Sep 13 '16 at 15:14
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -Pi, Pi}, Frame -> True, 
 FrameTicks -> {{All, All}, {All, All}}, ImagePadding -> All]

  • $\begingroup$ It works for Plot, but I find that if I use ListPlot, even if I include the FrameTicks -> {{All, All}, {All, All}} it is not showing the right and upper frame. why is that? $\endgroup$ – Physicist Sep 20 '16 at 23:21
  • $\begingroup$ It works; e.g. ListPlot[Table[Sin[x], {x, -Pi, Pi, 0.01}], Frame -> True, FrameTicks -> {{All, All}, {All, All}}, ImagePadding -> All]. $\endgroup$ – corey979 Sep 21 '16 at 6:37
