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];
hold on;
axis on;
grid on;
box on;
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);
ylabel('SLP [hPa]','FontSize',24)
xlim([1978 2022]);
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

xticklabels({'','','\bf 1980','','','','','\bf 1985',...
'','','','','\bf 1990','','','','','\bf 1995','','','','','\bf 2000',...
'','','','','\bf 2005','','','','','\bf 2010','','','','','\bf 2015',...
'','','','','\bf 2020',''.''})

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