# exponent fonts with usetex

(Sorry, I submitted this email with a real figure instead of a toy
example and the file size was too big and it awaits moderator
approval).

I am afraid I asked you to open a can of worms and now I don't know
what we should do. With my font size settings, \small looks to small
for the exponents. I tried \normalsize and actually got decent
results with \large (replacing all occurances of \small in your
ticker.py). See that attached file. But if \small looked good with
your settings, I am afraid things are now dependent on the font
settings in the rc file as far as what should go in the latex command
for the exponents.

I remember that this problem came up because I complained about serif
fonts in my exponents and we were having a hard time making tex use
sans serif math fonts.

Maybe the best solution is for me to go back in time and retract that complaint.

fairly happy with (I will poke around in my rc file and see if I can
find out why my x and y axis fonts look different).

I agree that this little experiment of trying to work around latex's
limitations has been too much trouble. I suggest we go back to the old
behavior, and anyone who wants sans-serif fonts in their exponents can use
regular mathtext. I'm hopeful that Edin can make some strides with mpl's
mathtext support, and in the meantime, people should get decent results if
they set ps.useafm : True in their rc settings.

It seems like no one has any comments on our plans concerning the
exponent fonts. Can you outline for me what it would take to fix
this? If it is fairly simple I may take a crack at it.

We didnt get any comments against, so I committed the changes this morning. We
will no longer try to support sans-serif mathmode fonts with the usetex
option, since there is no native support for them in latex. If you are using
svn matplotlib, I suggest clearing your tex.cache after updating.
