Hello Terry !

Here 2 examples to see some possibilities !

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}, TextStyle ->
    {FontFamily -> "Times", FontSlant -> "Italic",
     FontWeight -> "Bold", FontSize -> 20}];

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2*Pi}, Ticks ->
    {{Pi/2, {4, StyleForm["x", FontSlant -> Italic,
        FontFamily -> Times, FontSize -> 16]}},
     {-1, 1, {Sin[4], StyleForm["y", FontSlant ->
         Italic, FontFamily -> Times, FontSize ->
         16]}}}, Epilog ->
    {{Dashing[{0.02}], Line[{{4, -0.2}, {4, Sin[4]},
        {0, Sin[4]}}]}, {PointSize[0.02],
      Point[{4, Sin[4]}]}}];

If you want, you can also initialize your textstyle in advance :
for example :

$TextStyle = {FontFamily -> "Times", FontSize -> 15}

and all the ticks will from now on have the specified style !

Meilleures salutations

Objet : [mg47185] Tick Labels Example

Hi All,

    I'm sure its been posted here before in the past (is there a
newsgroup archive that is searchable?), but could some one post an
example of how to get the Tick Labels in  a 2D Plot  displayed  in
something other  than the  "Default" settings.  for example, change the
font size, and  the "Boldness" attribute.  Any simple example will do.
I don't need to produce any new  tick marks than what the  default
gives,   I just want them to appear more visible.   Thanks  in advance!!
