How to make the xtick mark where I have a label in bold (as shown in attached figure).
Here is the code I use to generate the figure:
years = [1979:1:2021];
figure(1);
hold on;
axis on;
grid on;
box on;
plot(years,TS_Mask,'LineWidth',3,'Color','black')
yline(M,'-k','LineWidth',2); %yline(M,'-k','mean');
yline(M+S,'--k','LineWidth',2); %yline(M+S,'--k','mean + 1*std');
yline(M-S,'--k','LineWidth',2); %yline(M-S,'--k','mean - 1*std');
p1=plot(positiveAnomaly,TS_Mask(find(TS_Mask >= M+S)),'^');
p1.MarkerSize = 12;
p1.MarkerFaceColor = 'black';
p1.MarkerEdgeColor = 'black';
p2=plot(negativeAnomaly,TS_Mask(find(TS_Mask <= M-S)),'v');
p2.MarkerSize = 12;
p2.MarkerFaceColor = 'black';
p2.MarkerEdgeColor = 'black';
p2007 = plot(2007,TS_Mask(29),'o','MarkerFaceColor','black','MarkerEdgeColor','black','MarkerSize',12);
p2012 = plot(2012,TS_Mask(34),'o','MarkerFaceColor','black','MarkerEdgeColor','black','MarkerSize',12);
xlabel('years','FontSize',24)
ylabel('SLP [hPa]','FontSize',24)
set(gca,'Fontsize',18);
xticks([1978:1:2022]);
xticklabels({'','','1980','','','','','1985',...
'','','','','1990','','','','','1995','','','','','2000',...
'','','','','2005','','','','','2010','','','','','2015',...
'','','','','2020',''.''})
xtickangle(0);
xlim([1978 2022]);
gcf;
I want to add bold tick mark in x where I have the x tick labels i.e. 1980, 1985, 1990, etc.
How can I do this?
Thank you

'','','','','\bf 1990','','','','','\bf 1995','','','','','\bf 2000',...
'','','','','\bf 2005','','','','','\bf 2010','','','','','\bf 2015',...

Do not xticks all the values. xticks the ones you want in bold, and set the minorticks to take care of everything else
