font

I would like to be able to use Cambria font (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambria_(typeface)) for all text on my charts.

I am adding these charts to a MS Word 2007 document written in the same font.

I tried to add Cambria as the fist string in rcsetup.py | defaultParams | 'font.serif'. That didn't work. Can I use this font for the charts?

You shouldn't edit rcsetup.py directly -- that is part of the matplotlib source code. Instead, you should edit the matplotlibrc settings file.

In there, you'll actually want to change two settings:

  1) Add Cambria to the front of the font.serif list
  2) Set "font.family" to "serif", so that mpl will use that list.

Hope this helps,
Mike

Mike -- thanks for your response. I thought I had tried this and it didn't work. I guess I didn't!!!! I just tried the following equivalent approach:

ML.rcParams['font.family'] = 'serif'
ML.rcParams['font.serif'] = ['Cambria Math'] + ML.rcParams['font.serif']

and it worked like a charm.

Thanks again.
