Force Log Scale on Axis with Small Range of Data

I’ve noticed that plotly will ignore the layout option for a logarithmic axis if the data along that axis is contained within a single decade. For example, if I try to plot data that spans about 1.6 - 2.4 on the y-axis, the plot refuses to display log scaling on the y-axis. However, if I enter everything in the same except taking the data to the sixth power (so that it now spans from about 16 - 190), the log scaling appears on the y-axis.

Is there any way to override this behavior and force plotly to use a log scale every time?
