How to globally change the fonts properties ?

Damn... I should have thought about it... but it doesn't work with the "too
large" fonts I'm left with: I changed

  font.size : medium

into

  font.size : x-small

in my ~/.matplotlibrc, but it changed nothing to the font used in the contours
ticks and in the colorbars ticks...

Any other idea ?

I had complained about not being able to set the legend fonts and John asked me to become a developer. I haven't started working on it yet, but I plan to when I get back from a conference next week. You may be in the same boat.

Here was John's response to me:

No, but it would not be difficult to add these parameters in rc.
Ready to become an mpl developer? :slight_smile:

Look at matplotlib/__init__.py to see how the rc params are
processed. Add the ones you want and use them in legend.py, following
the example of Text or Line2D in matplotlib.text and matplotlib.line2d
respectively.

If you make progress on this before I do, let me know how you did it.
