Convenience functions to set the axis limits.


Observations not in this range will be dropped completely and not passed to any other layers. If a NA value is substituted for one of the limits that limit is automatically calculated.







If numeric, will create a continuous scale, if factor or character, will create a discrete scale. For lims, every argument must be named.

For changing x or y axis limits without dropping data observations, see coord_cartesian.

  geom_point() +
  xlim(NA, 20)

# Change both xlim and ylim

  lims(x = c(10, 20), y = c(3, 5))
