Description

In ~all other GMT utilities the -X and -Y is used to shift plot origin. As far as I can see this option is not available in pssegy and pssegyz, where -X and -Y is used to do something else. Having the ability to shift plot origin in these tools as well would be very convenient.

History

#1 Updated by Joaquim over 3 years ago

The only way to do that is be redefining the meaning of -X & -Y in those programs and assign the current behavior to a new option flags.

Meanwhile, I think you can obtain the desired effect by doing a call to psbasemap -X -Y that plots nothing (or something invisible).

You are correct Joaquim, why didn't I think of that.

Thanks for pointing this out; we will change this shortly as no supplement will be allowed to use any GMT common options for its own nefarious purposes.

Sounds great Paul. As Joaquim said, this is totally possible by using a 'ghost'-psbasemap, but having a rigid regime of GMT common options, as -X and -Y to shift plots, would be ideal.

Sorry, you confused me with GMT 4. In GMT 5 we have already dealt with that issue; the old -X<mult> is -Qx<mult>, -B<bias> is -Qb<bias>, etc. and -X, -Y have their normal meanings. Thee won't be any changes to GMT 4.

Yes, but the man pages had not been updated. Now they are.
