I am having some issues with axes in PSTricks. Here is my current MWE,

\usepackage{pst-node, pst-plot}

\begin{pspicture}[showgrid=false](-5.0, -23)(110.0, 20.0)
\psaxes[Dx=10,Dy=10,linewidth=1pt,ticksize=2pt]{->}(0,0)(0.0,-23)(105,20)[$z (\si{\milli\meter})$, 0][$$,90]

I have two issues:

  1. I want to rotate all tick-labels, both on the x- and y-axis (including the x-axis label) by 90 degrees CCW.
  2. I want for the two axis to meet at the bottom of the y-axis instead of (0, 0), as it is now.

\usepackage{pst-node, pst-plot}

\begin{pspicture}[showgrid=false](-5.0, -28)(115.0, 20.0)
        Oy=-23]{->}(0.0,-23)(105,20)[$z (\si{\milli\meter})$, 0][,0]


enter image description here

if you want to rotate the axes labels too, then use (shown for x):

\uput[0]{90}(105,-23){$z (\si{\milli\meter})$}

Thanks, how about the labels of x- and y-axis? Can they be rotated too be rotatebox? – BillyJean Oct 8 '13 at 19:05
xLabelsRot does not work. And the manual contains so many typos in capitalization. – kiss my armpit Oct 8 '13 at 19:07
@PGFTricks So do you suggest that I use rput for the axes-labels and rotate manually? – BillyJean Oct 8 '13 at 19:11
@BillyJean: see edited answer – Herbert Oct 8 '13 at 19:15
