Hello Carlos, I don't have a 5.2 in front off me, but I can give you a 6.0 suggestion, and perhaps you can backtrack and change it for 5.2. I often put such things into my init.m SetOptions[Plot, BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontSlant -> "Italic", FontSize -> 24} ] Plot[Nest[Sin, x, 128], {x, 0, 4 Pi}, PlotLabel -> Wiggly, AxesLabel -> {Uncle, Grandpa}] On Tue, Apr 22, 2008 at 6:28 AM, <carlos at colorado.edu> wrote: > I have often used TextStyle as a global option in Show, for example > > TextStyle->{FontFamily->"Times",FontSlant->"Italic",FontSize->9} > > to render all text in a plot.
