I'm trying to adjust the font weight on some of my plots - I'd like to
have the numbers along the axis ticks be bold instead of regular font
like the default setting. The problem is, nothing I do seems to
change the font weight. I've changed everything I can font in
matplotlibrc to bold, and when I go in and explicitly look at the
XTick or YTick objects and their text properties, it even claims the
text is bold... yet the text is normal weight font when displayed on
A would also like to have the plot labels be bolder, as well, and I
can't seem to change that either.
Note that I have usetex as True, and I realize that this means the
labels, at least, are rendered through TeX... but I'm not clear on how
I can change the font properties to render bold versions of all the
TeX fonts I'm using (assuming this is possible). And I've been under
the impression that the default number formattes, at least, don't
render through TeX. So does anyone know how I can make all/any of my
text elemens bold?
