I'm using ListPlot to plot some data points and have used options like PlotLabel -> "64 cycles in FIFO", AxesLabel -> {"S/N dB", "RMS error mm"} But the graphs come out look pretty awful. 1) The font looks like courier 2) The text on the x-axis starts at the end of the axis, not under the numbers which is more usual. 3) The text on the y-axis runs horizontally, along the top, rather than vertically. Any suggestions for some ways to make graphs look better. I don't want to have to export the data into Excel!!
