I have plotted something using Mathematica 11.0 and it takes a while to generate the plot.

I would like to use the package MaTeX on the generated plot to do some modifications but it seems that I will have to re-plot everytime I need to do any modification. Is there any way to use the package to modify the plot after obtaining it instead of during the pre-compile-time of the plot (so to speak)?

Here is the code I am using :

Plot[2.0*solk[logn], {logn, 0, 23}, 
 AxesLabel -> {"\!\(\*SubscriptBox[\(Log\), \(10\)]\)[n]", 
   "\!\(\*FractionBox[\(\(\*SubscriptBox[\(Log\), \(10\)]\)[\*
StyleBox[\"\[CapitalLambda]\",\nFontSize->16]]\), \(2\)]\)"}, 
 PlotRange -> Full, PlotStyle -> {Thick, Red}, Frame -> True, 
 ImageSize -> 700, 
 FrameLabel -> {Style[MaTeX["{ Number~ of~ Entangled~ Spins~ (N) }"], 
    FontSize -> 35], 
     "{ Cosmological~constant~ in~ static~ patch}~ (\\Lambda)"], 
    FontSize -> 35]}, 
 LabelStyle -> {Directive[Black, Bold], FontSize -> 15}]

    $\begingroup$ Can you be specific about what kind of modification you want to make? BTW there are several mistakes in how you use MaTeX: it expects math-mode LaTeX. If you want text, use \text. Style cannot be applied to the output. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Szabolcs Modifications like trying various font-sizes, colours etc on the labels. If possible, even change the ImageSize. Whatever is available to be modified post plot production I would like to modify. Thanks for the tip on the math-mode expectation. I received this from a collaborator and now I can make it look better. Can you please point out other mistakes as well? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You can change any Graphics option using Show, including ImageSize, FrameLabels, PlotLabel, etc., even Epilog. Show[plot, opt1 -> val1, ...]. No need to regenerate the plot. $\endgroup$
