I am trying to plot data using the ListLogLinearPlot.

Here is my initial code:

 ListLogLinearPlot[{xlist, ynorm}\[Transpose], 
   PlotRange -> All, 
   Joined -> True, 
   Axes -> {0, 0}, 
   PlotStyle -> {{Thick, Black}, {Black}}, Frame -> True, 
   FrameLabel -> {"Size (d,nm)", "Normalized Signal Intensity"}, 
   LabelStyle -> Directive[Bold, 20, FontFamily -> "Arial", Black]]

and my result is:

enter image description here

Now, when I try to change the range to go from 0 to 1000 on the x-axis, the plot becomes this:

ListLogLinearPlot[{xlist, ynorm}\[Transpose],
  PlotRange -> {{0, 1000}, {0.0, 1.0}}, 
  Joined -> True, 
  Axes -> {0, 0},
  PlotStyle -> {{Thick, Black}, {Black}}, Frame -> True, 
  FrameLabel -> {"Size (d,nm)", "Normalized Signal Intensity"}, 
  LabelStyle -> Directive[Bold, 20, FontFamily -> "Arial", Black]]

enter image description here

If I remove Joined-> True, I get the requested plot range, but I want my plot to be joined.

ListLogLinearPlot[{xlist, ynorm}\[Transpose], 
  PlotRange -> {{0, 1000}, {0, 1.1}}, 
  Axes -> {0, 0}, 
  PlotStyle -> {{Thick, Black}, {Black}}, Frame -> True, 
  FrameLabel -> {"Size (d,nm)", "Normalized Signal Intensity"}, 
  LabelStyle -> Directive[Bold, 20, FontFamily -> "Arial", Black]]

enter image description here

I have no idea of what is going on. I am a polymer chemist by trade and know very basic coding. All I want is to be able to import light scattering data and visualize it using Mathematica.

Edit: Thank you for all your help! I apologize for not including my x and y data lists; here they are:

    $\begingroup$ Since it looks like your {xlist,ynorm} might be plausible in side, is there any chance you might edit your question to include that data? Then someone could use their MMA to try to reproduce exactly your problem and see if the could find a fix that would be far more likely to work. $\endgroup$ – Bill Oct 10 '18 at 22:08

    $\begingroup$ we can't replicate the issue without input data. Meanwhile a work-around: Remove Joined-.True and post-process the output to turn Points into a Line, e.g., ListLogLinearPlot[{xlist, ynorm}\[Transpose], PlotRange -> {{0, 1000}, {0.0, 1.0}}, Axes -> {0, 0}, PlotStyle -> {{Thick, Black}, {Black}}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"Size (d,nm)", "Normalized Signal Intensity"}, LabelStyle -> Directive[Bold, 20, FontFamily -> "Arial", Black]] /. Point -> Line $\endgroup$ – kglr Oct 10 '18 at 22:12
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Mathematica.SE! I suggest the following: 1) As you receive help, try to give it too, by answering questions in your area of expertise. 2) Take the tour and check the faqs! 3) When you see good questions and answers, vote them up by clicking the gray triangles, because the credibility of the system is based on the reputation gained by users sharing their knowledge. Also, please remember to accept the answer, if any, that solves your problem, by clicking the checkmark sign! $\endgroup$ – Chris K Oct 11 '18 at 1:27

    $\begingroup$ With PlotRange -> {{0, 1000}, {0.0, 1.0}} the xmin is 0; there is no 0 on a log plot. If you change this to a positive value, does the problem go away? Or try PlotRange -> {Automatic, {0.0, 1.0}} $\endgroup$ – Bob Hanlon Oct 11 '18 at 1:58
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you all for the help! The workaround of /.Point->Line worked well. Meanwhile, I edited the post to include my x and y values. I apologize for not doing that originally. Thanks again! $\endgroup$ – Tyler Womble Oct 11 '18 at 13:09

A work-around:

ListLogLinearPlot[{xlist, ynorm}\[Transpose], 
   PlotRange -> {{0, 1000}, {0.0, 1.0}}, Axes -> {0, 0}, 
   PlotStyle -> {{Thick, Black}, {Black}}, 
   Frame -> True, 
   FrameLabel -> {"Size (d,nm)", "Normalized Signal Intensity"}, 
   LabelStyle -> Directive[Bold, 20, FontFamily -> "Arial", Black]] /.
  Point -> Line
