Re: [R] font sizes

Having experimented with both a sun workstation and a PC, changing pointsize within the PC does have the desired effect, but it does nothing within the Sun.

Unforutnately, the PC won't let me load the workspace I want (which I normally access through the sun) due to `lazy loading' errors.

Thinking more generally, although I think the ability to fine tune R graphics is excellent, even superlative, what I would find really useful is means to load a whole load of graphical settings in one go; one setting to look at on-screen, one setting for written reports, one setting for slides. Can anyone suggest a good way of going about this.

thanks Simon
