## [Scilab-users] Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?

 Dear all, After having changed the default grid style in Scilab 6.1.0, i propose to go on, tuning more carefully the default font size of axes labels. Each time that i define a xlabel, ylabel or sometimes zlabel, and a title, i have also to set explicitly their fontsize property, because i find the default size=1 always too small. Is it also your usage? Indeed, the font size = 1 is fine for ticks labels. From here, axes labels must be displayed with a bigger font size. Sometime size=2 is still not enough, noticeably with a LaTeX content. But well, then we can actually use an explicit fontsize setting. This proposal impacts everybody and frequently, because making plots is a basic task in Scilab Every comment is welcome, before implementing this simple change. Hope reading you soon. Samuel Gougeon clf subplot(1,3,1) plot2d xlabel "Title for abscissas" ylabel "Title for ordinates" subplot(1,3,2) xlabel "Title for abscissas" fontsize 2 ylabel "Title for ordinates" fontsize 2 plot2d subplot(1,3,3) xlabel "$\alpha\text{ coefficient }[m^{-1}]$" fontsize 2 ylabel "$\beta\text{ result }[lm^{-1}]$" fontsize 2 plot2d _______________________________________________ users mailing list [hidden email] http://lists.scilab.org/mailman/listinfo/users

## Re: Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?

 Dear Samuel,   I also have the same feeling that larger default font size would suit better, most of the time, as in the end the figures worked and analysed in Scilab environment are inserted into reports.   Regards,   David   De : users <[hidden email]> De la part de Samuel Gougeon Envoyé : lundi 1 février 2021 23:27 À : International users mailing list for Scilab. <[hidden email]> Objet : [Scilab-users] Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?   Dear all, After having changed the default grid style in Scilab 6.1.0, i propose to go on, tuning more carefully the default font size of axes labels.

## Re: Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?

 In reply to this post by Samuel GOUGEON Hello , Very good idea ! I actually defined a function to perform xtitle and immediately increase font sizes for the axes labels, axis titles and title of the figure. I originally set them to a size of 2 for the labels and 3 for the titles. Still, the reviewers for publications seldom complain about too large font sizes, much more about too small font sizes! For these applications, the risk of having to change the font sizes upon revision of a paper is smaller with default font sizes of 3 for the labels and 4 (or even 5 when LaTeX style is used) for the titles … Best regards Denis De : users <[hidden email]> De la part de Samuel Gougeon Envoyé : lundi 1 février 2021 23:27 À : International users mailing list for Scilab. <[hidden email]> Objet : [Scilab-users] Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?   Dear all, After having changed the default grid style in Scilab 6.1.0, i propose to go on, tuning more carefully the default font size of axes labels.

## Re: Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?

 In reply to this post by Samuel GOUGEON Hi, +1 for this missing feature. But since the name of the concerned Label entity property of is "font_size" I would recommend to use it instead of "fontsize". S.

I have a comment concerning the syntax. I'm not particularly fan of the "inline" syntax without parenthesis. Is your:     xlabel "Title for abscissas" fontsize 2 syntaxic sugar for     xlabel( "Title for abscissas", fontsize=2) or something equivalent? Antoine Hope reading you soon.

## Re: Default x|y|z labels and title font size = 2?

 In reply to this post by Samuel GOUGEON Hi Samuel I agree. The font is always too small. The font = 2 seems to be the smallest feasible increment and it sounds like a good one (i.e. without overdoing it). You mention grid. I always do xgrid(color("grey70")); ... is this default now, to have the grid a bit greyed?

 Dear all, Thank you for your comments. Le 02/02/2021 à 17:02, Claus Futtrup a écrit : Hi Samuel I agree. The font is always too small. The font = 2 seems to be the smallest feasible increment and it sounds like a good one (i.e. without overdoing it). I agree, 2 is a minimal value.  Unless there are more "votes" for 3, let's propose this new default value = 2 for Scilab 6.1.1. Le 02/02/2021 à 09:39, CRETE Denis a écrit : .../... I actually defined a function to perform xtitle and immediately increase font sizes for the axes labels, axis titles and title of the figure. I originally set them to a size of 2 for the labels and 3 for the titles. So do i. But technically speaking, setting a different default value for the title is much harder (to me. I got lost in the code..). As well, detecting when the input is some LaTeX content and then increase the default font size is technically more complicated. Let's start with a simple but urgent improvement. Still, the reviewers for publications seldom complain about too large font sizes, much more about too small font sizes! For these applications, the risk of having to change the font sizes upon revision of a paper is smaller with default font sizes of 3 for the labels and 4 (or even 5 when LaTeX style is used) for the titles Right. I am afraid that some "final touch" will anyway most often be required, depending on the Reviewer, the Editor, etc. Le 02/02/2021 à 17:02, Claus Futtrup a écrit : You mention grid.
