Move positive and negative y ticks in plot in alignment

3 views (last 30 days)
In my plot below I want to align the yticks to the right so that the numbers are aligned vertically. The -3 and -6 are closer to the axis line as they have a minus first whereas the 0, 3 and 6 have a space after them. I tried putting a space prior to these three digits so the numbers are aligned but didn't work. Is there a way to do this or make these ticks alig to the right rather than left?
ylim([-6.3 6.3])
yticks([-6 -3 0 3 6]);

Experiment with the TickLabelFormat property of the NumericRuler Properties.
figure
plot(1:10, randn(1,10))
ylim([-6.3 6.3])
yticks([-6 -3 0 3 6]);
Ax = gca;
Ax.YAxis.TickLabelFormat = '%3.0f';
.

My pleasure!
That was essentially my original approach. There are several ways to set the tick format, and I chose one that I was certain would work.
