Re: [ferret_users] vector/nolabels/key

Hi -
To change the location of the key, you can use the PPL VECKEY command. Here's a note about that:


The last argument for veckey is the formatting of the numeric label - for positioning it you'll just need the first two arguments.

Here's from a script I use - it puts the vector key up at the top of the plot

   yes? vector/set uwnd, vwnd
   yes? ppl veckey/unouser 2, `($ppl$ylen)+0.2`
   yes? ppl vector

Hi Jessie,
What version of Ferret are you running? The VECTOR/KEY qualifier is fairly new, and is only available in Ferret v6.64 and higher.

I'm trying to overlay some current vectors on fields; I don't want the labels but I do need a current key. I looked and the documentation and used the following:

vector/overlay/nolabels/key/l=2/k=1/xskip=2/yskip=3/length=.5 uavg[d=3],vavg[d=3]

ferret gives me this error:

  **ERROR: unknown command qualifier: key

Is there a way to get that key on the plot without a lot of bitmap editing?

Also, while I'm at it, is there a way to change the location of that key?
