Re: changing font size

Hi Muyin,

If you use the syntax

    yes? contour/title="My title" i[i=1:5]+j[j=1:5]

then Ferret will automatically size the title for you.

If you want to use the low-level PPL calls then you can supply the size in the PPL
TITLE command:

   yes? contour/nolab/set i[i=1:5]+j[j=1:5]
   yes? ppl title .25 @CRMy TITLE
   yes? ppl contour

The erratic sizing that you were experiencing arose from using the low level PLOT+
command without specifying the title size.  You were implicitly requesting PLOT+ to
reuse the size of the last title it drew (I think).
