I noticed that by putting a space between the mu and m in setoptions, it looks OK 2009/6/24 Jeff Lawlis <jlawlis at allendalecolumbia.org>: > Problem: use of ColorFunction affects spacing of Greek characters in Frame label. > > Here is a simple example of the problem: > > SetOptions[Plot, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> "Wavelength (\[Mu]m)"] > Plot[y = x, {x, 1, 1000}, > ColorFunction -> (ColorData["VisibleSpectrum"][#] &), > ColorFunctionScaling -> False, Filling -> Axis] > > Notice the space between the Greek character \[Mu] and the m, causing them to overlap the right parantheses. The space disappears if you remove the ColorFunction gradient from the plot parameters. Also, if you change \[Mu] to a standard character like m, the formatting looks perfectly accep table. To be honest, I don't really understand the reason for the [#] & following the ColorData tag, but the gradient doesn't seem to work properly without it. Is my syntax correct? > > -- Peter Lindsay
