I am trying to have the text show on one of my points on the plot.
When I use the command
text(x(1),y(1),'Mark 1')
The text overlaps on the point.
When I use
text(x(1)+0.5,y(1),'Mark 1')
No text is shown (even when using the "hold on" command).
If I only have one Mark (comment out the others), I have the command
text(x1,y1,'Mark 1')
and the Mark's label is offset to the right.
Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

If the x axis goes from x(1)-0.1 to x(1)+0.1, the text drawn at x(1)+0.5 is outside the visible area. Does this happen in your case? If not, please post some code, which reproduces the problem you see.

Thankyou Star and Jan,
The text was indeed outside of the window space.
