Re: How to keep the coordinate system the same when plotting usrbin distributions

Dear Vasislis,

Hello and thank you for the explanations,

Of the suggested solutions, only the "inversion of the axis" works, i.e. set yrange [:] reverse

Mario's suggestion, i.e. to play with the plotting command works to some degree but I noticed that although both the
data and geometry get flipped around the vertical axis, the numbers on the y axis don't change sign which makes things
confusing. I don't know why this happens.

Swapping does not accomplish what we need. work since it swaps the axes. Our goal is to keep the same viewpoint in a
2D projection of a usrbin plot as in the geometry and this entails flipping of the vertical axis only.

Best wishes,
