Setting limits on OffAxisProjection plots manually
by Setton, David Jonathan - (davidsetton)
I apologize for bombarding the mailing list this past bit, but hopefully this should be the last question that I have. I'm trying to set aysmmetric units on a projection plot (i.e. xlim=[-10,40] and ylim=[-35,35] in kpc. However, there is not a set_xlim or set_ylim option for off axis projection plots. The idea that I had was to use the pan function. Since my box is 100 kpc in each direction, in code units, I attempted to set the width of my box:
#read in my data with the proper north and normal vectors to get the orientation right
proj = OffAxisProjectionPlot(ds,normal,'density',center=gal_center,north_vector=north)
#this should set the box to be 50 kpc in the x direction and 70 kpc in the y direction
#pan the box 15 kpc to the right
However, when I show the plot, the pan() function has not shifted it at all. Is there a way to manually set the limits to what I need to, or to properly use the pan function?
Thanks again for all the help, you guys have been great about getting back to me quickly.
