# Tick label is missing

These plots do not show the first tick label on the left:

Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-.41, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-.42, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-.43, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-.44, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-.51, 1.05}, None}]


But these work fine:

Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-1.41, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-1.42, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-1.43, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-1.44, 1.05}, None}]
Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
Ticks -> {{#, "Z = " <> ToString@#} & /@ {-1.51, 1.05}, None}]


Am I missing something, or possibly a bug?

• Mathematica will suppress tick labels that would obscure an axis line if drawn. In such cases you will see the tick but not the label. Commented Apr 28, 2015 at 19:49
• @m_goldberg Is it possible to switch off suppression of such tick labels? Commented Apr 29, 2015 at 0:14
• @AlexeyPopkov. Not that I know of. Commented Apr 29, 2015 at 2:04

Plot[Sin[x], {x, -4, 4},
