How to prevent overlapping of point values on a matlab plot?

18 views (last 30 days)
I want to display values of two points fairly close to each other, when I do that, there values appear to be overlapping each other and i have to zoom in to read each value. Is there a simple way to prevent this overlap, such that the points concerned are shown where they are but there values are just apart enough to be legible.

There is a submission on the FEX that lets you put multiple annotations in a plot, making sure they don't overlap. Is that what you need? If so, I could try to find it for you.

Thank you guys so much for trying to help me! It turns out my prof doesn't want the points after all.

why not put it in a legend if there are so few points
points=[1 1.01;1 1];
xlim([0 2])
ylim([0 2])
for ind = 1:size(points,2)
ltext{ind} = ['(' num2str(points(ind,1)) ',' num2str(points(ind,2)) ')'];
