I have a Pgfplot and for some reason it does not care about my y-axis settings... I have set ymax to 15 but for some reason it only goes up to ymax is 14 or something...

Can anyone explain why? And how I fix this?

Since my plot is based on coordinate data (and the complete source) exceeds the input limit of a question you can download the complete source here: http://pastebin.com/nwNwuFam

However I also noticed that this also occures when I don't set any coordinate data...

enter image description here

\pgfplotsset{plot coordinates/math parser=false}


  scale only axis,
  every x tick label/.append style={font=\scriptsize\color{gray!80!black}},
  every y tick label/.append style={font=\scriptsize\color{gray!80!black}},

xmin=0, xmax=0.015,
xlabel={Time [\si{\second}]},
ymin=-10, ymax=15,
scaled x ticks=base 10:2]

The plot goes up to 15 for me, and none of the data is cut off. What version of PGFPlots are you using? – Jake Apr 18 '13 at 9:08
How can I check that? – WG- Apr 18 '13 at 9:09
It's printed in your .log file that's generated when you compile your document, somewhere near the start of the file. – Jake Apr 18 '13 at 9:20
Yeah, updating PGFPlots might be a good idea. Take a look at the second answer to tex.stackexchange.com/questions/97743/updating-pgfplots for a way of doing this without tlmgr – Jake Apr 18 '13 at 9:28
