Some 15 years
 ago I wrote a simple script to thicken the PostScript lines of Ferret output:


This just automates what Matt suggested.

Karl is currently testing some PyFerret enhancements that will enable us to
 set the thickness of
(including axes & labels)
(1/72 inch)
rather than
.  Similarly, the window dimensions will be explicitly specified in real-world inches (as well as screen pixels).  This will enable us to
 on paper exactly what we see
in the Ferret window

There will also be an option to thicken all lines in a window by a single factor -- making the above script obsolete.

The way I deal with the pale figures is by opening the .ps file in a text editor prior to converting to pdf and changing the /lw setting to 750:

/lw {750 div setlinewidth} def

Then after changing the linewidth parameter I convert to pdf or jpg or png or whatever format I want. 

Other folks can help you with the legend.

Hi all,
  I want to plot publishing quality line plot in ferret with multiple parameters in same plot (say 4 parameters). Two in thick colour (thick blue, thick black) and two in light (light blue, light black). If I use the "plot", then "/over" command then I am not getting how to keep the legend. If I use all parameters together in plot command and use go legend command I am not able to control the colors. So is there any smart way to deal with this problem?
Moreover, the plot (thick=3 option) command figures saved in eps/ps formats are becoming somewhat pale after converting into pdf file. Is there any way to get maximum thickness (publishing quality) ?

Thanks in advance.
