Re: axis positioning

Hi there,

For your next release, could you consider inserting a method in
AxisScale class which will let user change the offset easily. Something
along the lines of:

private double offset = 1.05;

  public void setOffset(double newOffset)
  {
    offset = newOffset;
  }

Just a note that at the same time, the title position will also need to be
relocated to the side of the box, rather than next to the actua axis.

regards,
igor
