# 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. Apr 28, 2015 at 19:49
• @m_goldberg Is it possible to switch off suppression of such tick labels? Apr 29, 2015 at 0:14
• @AlexeyPopkov. Not that I know of. Apr 29, 2015 at 2:04

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