# Missing something obvious with tick label styles in pgfplots [duplicate]

Why does this not produce y tick labels in fixed number format? (pgfplots version 1.9 produces y tick labels in scientific format)

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage{pgfplots}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[y tick label style={/pgf/number format/fixed}]
\end{axis}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}


Adding a zerofill={true} will fix this:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage{pgfplots}
\pgfplotsset{compat=1.11}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
\begin{axis}[y tick label style={/pgf/number format/fixed,
/pgf/number format/fixed zerofill={true}}]

• Thank you, but I'd like the numbers to come out as 0.0830 instead of $0.0830 \times 10^{-2}$. I didn't know how to force that. (My actual graph is obviously different from the above one.) I've since found out that scaled y ticks=false does what I want, but I'll accept your answer regardless. – JPi Sep 10 '14 at 0:04
