### Abbrev(axis)

Abbreviate leading fields within numerical axis labels?

#### Description:

This attribute controls the appearance of an annotated coordinate grid (drawn with the AST_GRID routine) by determining whether matching leading fields should be removed from adjacent numerical axis labels. It takes a separate value for each physical axis of a Plot so that, for instance, the setting " Abbrev(2)=0" specifies that matching leading fields should not be removed on the second axis.

If the Abbrev value of a Plot is non-zero (the default), then leading fields will be removed from adjacent axis labels if they are equal.

Type:
Integer (boolean).

#### Applicability

##### Plot
All Plots have this attribute.

#### Notes:

• If no axis is specified, (e.g. " Abbrev" instead of " Abbrev(2)" ), then a " set" or " clear" operation will affect the attribute value of all the Plot axes, while a " get" or " test" operation will use just the Abbrev(1) value.
