Hi Michael,

When you set up the panel, do this:

 Bio::Graphics::Panel->new(-blah -blah,
                                         -pad_left => 20,
                                          -pad_right => 20);

This will leave enough room on the left and right for you to see the Y axis.
Otherwise it runs off the edge of the image (ok, this is a mis-design, but
it was the only way to solve a chicken-and-egg problem about who gets to say
how wide the panel is)
