Edit Font

Use this to set fonts to control the appearance of the text in a graph. The items for which fonts can be set depend on the type of graph, for example, only if it is a 3D graph will the Z-axis title and labels will be able to be set. For an item, the Font, Size and Colour can be set.

The default font and sizes for these are controlled by the current graphics environment which can be set in the Graphics Environment menu.

Font

This is a drop-down list that gives a selection of the fonts available on your computer. Select the font that you want the text to be displayed in.

Size

This numeric value that gives the size of the font as a multiplier of the standard Genstat font height. This must a positive number. The spin button after the size field will decrease or increase the font size by 0.1.

Colour

This gives the colour of the font. Clicking the button will open a box enabling one of the 32 standard colours to be selected, or else a custom colour to be selected with the Windows colour picker.

Sample

This displays a preview of your selected font with the size and colour attributes you selected.

Font Items

The items that can have their fonts edited with this dialog are:

The default settings for this are set in the Graphics Environment Axis tab.
