Re: [ferret_users] Contour Labels on White Box?

I didn't understand the question (and still I'm not sure I understand it even after Ansley's answer).

One solution to many of these dilemmas is to draw whatever you want using an otherwise unused color, then do a simple edit of the resulting postscript file to modify that particular color. Search the mail archives for "edit postscript" and you should find instructions to change the colors by modifying the "ct" (color table) code near the top of the postscript file. It's pretty easy even if you know nothing about postscript code.

Another technique is to define two identical plot boxes (DEFINE VIEWPORT). Make your background SHADE or FILL plot, then use the second viewport to draw your white contours on top of that.

Hi Jammal,
No, there is not a way to make the labels for contour lines on a small white background. One idea for you to try is to use white for the lines and labels, which might show up better, depending on the palettes you are using.

   yes? fill/i=1:15/j=1:15 i+j
   yes? contour/over/lev/color=white/i=1:15/j=1:15 i+j

Another thing people sometimes do is to make the final plot for a publication, and then use a separate graphics editing program to make a few changes to enhance the figure. This might be another way to get exactly what you want.

Dear Ferret users,

Is there any way to plot contour labels on white Box in CONTOUR command not to be disturbed by FILLed or SHADed background?
