The %% code I had used before was along the lines of "axis([axes1, axes2], ax)", but this %% code (now) produces uneven yaxes.

It's related to some rather obscure axes properties that i can never figure out. As suggested by the workaround, when you need your axes to do exactly what you want them to do, it's best to avoid axis() and set the limits directly with the set function.
