Try ..

       set (gca, "fontsize", 14)

If that doesn't work, let us know what version of Octave you are running.


Thank you very much - that works fine on screen.  But when I print to a file, with


the tick labels are as small as ever.  Why does the print command not pick up the fontsize, and how can I print to a file using larger fonts?

Changing the axes fontsize should change the fontsize of the eps file. However, gnuplot renders the fontsize for eps output at one-half the size requested.

Please try to print using different fontsizes and let us know if fontsize changes.

plot (1:10)
set (gca, "fontsize", 12)
print -depsc fontsize12.eps
set (gca, "fontsize", 36)
print -depsc fontsize36.eps

This should produce eps output with fontsizes 6 and 18.

Also please tell us which version of Octave your are running.
