When autoscaling, whether to obey all Artist.sticky_edges.

Default is True.

Setting this to False ensures that the specified margins will be applied, even if the plot includes an image, for example, which would otherwise force a view limit to coincide with its data limit.

The changing this property does not change the plot until autoscale or autoscale_view is called.
