I am trying to put specific ticks but in that process the minor ticks are not showing anymore. How to show the minor ticks as well. Here is an example:

ListLinePlot[Table[{x, x}, {x, 0, 10}]]

enter image description here

In the x-axis I want to put ticks 1,2,3,4...,10. So I do

ListLinePlot[Table[{x, x}, {x, 0, 10}],Ticks -> {{1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}, All}]

enter image description here

But now I destroyed all the minor ticks on the x-axis. Is there any way to bring them back? Thanks.

  • $\begingroup$ thank you for reminder. I was actually hoping for some easy and elegant solution and thus was waiting for a bit. I thought this question is going to be duplicate because many must have experienced this issue. To me however both these solutions are perfectly good and both does the job. $\endgroup$ – Boogeyman Jul 11 '18 at 18:51

A function to add custom ticks to the ticks generated automatically (actually, to the ticks that are close to the automatically generated ones):

ClearAll[addTicks]
addTicks[axis_ : 1] :=  Module[{newticks = #, 
   autoticks =  Charting`FindTicks[{0, 1}, {0, 1}][## & @@ PlotRange[#2][[axis]]]},
     DeleteDuplicatesBy[First][Join[Transpose[{(1.) newticks, newticks}] , autoticks]]]&;

Examples:

llp = ListLinePlot[Table[{x, x^2}, {x, 0, 10}] , ImageSize -> 300];
 
Row[{llp, Show[llp, Ticks -> {addTicks[][Range[10], llp], 
     addTicks[2][Range[0, 100, 10], llp]}]}, Spacer[5]]

enter image description here

lp3d = ListPlot3D[Table[Sin[j^2 + i], {i, 0, 10}, {j, 0, 50, 10}], 
   DataRange -> {{0, 10}, {0, 50}} , ImageSize -> 300];

Row[{lp3d, Show[lp3d, Ticks -> {addTicks[][Range[0, 10, 2], lp3d], 
     addTicks[2][Range[0, 50, 10], lp3d]}] }, Spacer[5]]

A bit of a kludge, but it works:

ListLinePlot[Table[{x, x}, {x, 0, 10}], 
    Ticks -> {Union[Table[{i, i, {.01, 0}}, {i, 10}], 
                    Table[{j/4, " ", {.005, 0}}, {j, 40}]], All}]

or

Ticks -> {Table[
   If[Mod[i, 4] == 0, {i/4, i/4, {.01, 0}}, 
                      {i/4, " ", {.005, 0}}], 
      {i, 40}], All}
$\endgroup$
