Graph IDE ► Controls ► Font Selector
The Font Selector controls a font type and size. Bring the Font Selector forward by selecting a font well, for example from the Label inspector editor. The font well does not look like a well as it is simply a textual label indicating the font name and size and usually has grey text which makes it look like a non-control label. Nonetheless, selecting it will bring forward the Font Selector. The figure below shows a Font Selector.
To change the font select a font name, style and size.
Note that editors like the Graph Titles And Labels editor has multiple text wells, one below each title text field (for the main, x-axis title and y-axis title) and also one that specifies the label fonts.
This section applies to the Mac only.
To affect a change in a font first select the graphic and then bring forward the font panel (command-t) and change the font. If a graphic does not have a font then no action is performed. If the graphic is a Label then the font for the entire label is changed. If the graphic is a Data Graphic then the font change is usually associated with a Point Tag label font. If the graphic is part of a Network then the font change applies to the node label.
If the graphic is a Graph then the font changed depends on the component of the graph hit. For a graph there are three component hit types:
|Title:||If the main, x or y title are hit then a font change is associated with that title only.|
|Labels:||If an axis label is hit then the font for all the labels of that axis are changed.|
|Frame:||If the hit is in the interior of the graph frame then the labels for all axes are changed.|
This way of changing fonts depends implicitly upon the component hit. Sometimes it is easier to use the inspector editor font well because that is an explicit context.
