Common left ylabel and right ylabel for subplots

29 次查看(过去 30 天)
I have a figure with 6 subplots in 2 rows and 3 columns. Each subplot has two y axes, first say "Y-1" and second, "Y-2". I want single ylabel on each side for the entire figure. I have following code that takes care of common ylabel on the left hand side:
fig = figure;
subplot(2, 3, 1)
subplot(2, 3, 6)
handle = axes(fig,'visible','off');
xlabel(handle, 'X')
ylabel(handle, 'Y-1')
For right hand common ylabel, I have tried using
yyaxis right
However, that doesn't work for me. Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks!

Hi Mayank ,
It is my understanding that you are unable to assign a common right ylabel for your multi axes graph using yylabel.This might be because there doesn,t exists a function like yylabel as i tried in matlab R2023a .
To resolve this issue, you may use the matlab inbuilt "yyaxis" OR "annotation" function of matlab to get the desired results .
For your reference, the below example demonstrates a simple approach to assign a common right label to a multi-axes graph using "annotation" function :
fig = figure;
% Subplot 1
subplot(2, 3, 1);
% ... code for subplot 1
% Subplot 6
subplot(2, 3, 6);
% ... code for subplot 6
% Create a common ylabel on the right side
annotation('textarrow', [0.91 0.91], [0.45 0.55], 'String', 'Y-1', 'HorizontalAlignment', 'center', 'VerticalAlignment', 'middle', 'Color', 'red', 'FontSize', 12);
% Adjust the figure's position to make room for the ylabel
fig.Position(3) = fig.Position(3) + 0.1;

Hi Harsh,
I tried similar approach previously but in this case, 'ylabel' on the left hand side disappears. For now, I will stick with the annotations and fiddle with this problem when I have more time. I am not closing this question yet as I would like to come back to it with or for a solution that uses 'ylabel' to get labels on both sides.
Thank you for your patience!
