# matplotlib.axes.Axes.set_anchor¶

Axes.set_anchor(anchor, share=False)

Define the anchor location.

The actual drawing area (active position) of the Axes may be smaller than the Bbox (original position) when a fixed aspect is required. The anchor defines where the drawing area will be located within the available space.

Parameters:
anchor : 2-tuple of floats or {'C', 'SW', 'S', 'SE', ...}

The anchor position may be either:

• a sequence (cx, cy). cx and cy may range from 0 to 1, where 0 is left or bottom and 1 is right or top.

• a string using cardinal directions as abbreviation:

• 'C' for centered
• 'S' (south) for bottom-center
• 'SW' (south west) for bottom-left
• etc.

Here is an overview of the possible positions:

 'NW' 'N' 'NE' 'W' 'C' 'E' 'SW' 'S' 'SE'
share : bool, optional

If True, apply the settings to all shared Axes. Default is False.
