scale the legend

Is it possible to make the relative size of the legend smaller? On my plots, the legend covers half the plot, and nothing I have tried so far seems to shrink the legend.

Thanks!

If you use recent version of mpl, the size of the overall legend
should scale with the font size.
See below,

import matplotlib.font_manager
prop = matplotlib.font_manager.FontProperties(size=5)
lagend(prop=prop)

Just in case, my preference in your case is to move the legend outside
of the axes area.

Well, that is something I did not try! But it works!

Thanks!
