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(float, float) or {'C', 'SW', 'S', 'SE', 'E', 'NE', ...}

Either an (x, y) pair of relative coordinates (0 is left or bottom, 1 is right or top), 'C' (center), or a cardinal direction ('SW', southwest, is bottom left, etc.). str inputs are shorthands for (x, y) coordinates, as shown in the following table:

.. code-block:: none
'NW' (0.0, 1.0) 'N' (0.5, 1.0) 'NE' (1.0, 1.0)
'W' (0.0, 0.5) 'C' (0.5, 0.5) 'E' (1.0, 0.5)
'SW' (0.0, 0.0) 'S' (0.5, 0.0) 'SE' (1.0, 0.0)
sharebool, default: False

If True, apply the settings to all shared Axes.
