&gt;|&gt; Hello,
&gt;|&gt;
&gt;
&gt;|&gt; Is it possible to change the defaults for the arguments to a
&gt;|&gt; function, without changing the function code itself? I'm asking
&gt;|&gt; because I'd like to override the default dimensions and font
family
&gt;|&gt; for a graphics device. Before 2.0.0, I'd just do that with a small
&gt;|&gt; edit in the appropriate .R file containing the device function
&gt;|&gt; definition. I appears to be possible no longer. So rather than
&gt;|&gt; copying the definition into my own .Rprofile, it would be nice if
&gt;|&gt; just the defaults could be modified...
&gt;
&gt;I didn't notice a response to this question. I'd like to do something
&gt;similar and haven't been able to work out how to do it.
&gt;

No, I haven't noticed a reply to this question neither.

Best,
