Adjusting Weight and Legends with Plotting

I’m using Plots and Gadfly pkgs to plot. I’d like to know how to make various adjustments, such as making the x and y-labels bold. I’d also like to know how to be able to move the legend within or to outside of the plot, in the case that it is covering data.

Welcome to the julia community!

In Gadfly, there are several ways to produce bold labels:

  • Theme(major_label_font = "Arial Bold")   (the font name might be hyphenated)
  • Guide.xlabel("<b>PetalWidth</b>")   (this is Pango markup)
  • Julia unicode input (great for math symbols)

You can mix Pango and unicode, see this example

For legend inside plot, see example in the Gadfly docs

Thanks @Mattriks. I’m no longer using Gadfly for plotting, but I’m using PyPlot and StatsPlots. I have the same question regarding bolding axes labels/title/etc. Thanks!
