I've read Mike Honeychurch's answer here, and while it tells me how to change the font size on all of my plots, that size change affects (I think) all text on the plot. I would like to be able to make all my axis labels 14 point by default and not necessarily affect anything else.
That is of course possible in the
Plot command, for example, by the
TicksStyle option. If you look in
Core.nb, in the Graphics StyleData (see the post above for a screen shot), there doesn't appear to be anything specific to tick labels, and searching
core.nb for that string doesn't produce anything useful.
Finally, the solution given in the post above does not allow changing of the color of the tick label font as far as I can tell. Changing the
FontColor changes only the color of graphics text inserted into the graphic. So I'd also like a way to do that.
So what am I missing? (I must say, I find the whole default option setting thing extremely overcomplicated. The cascading structure is great, but the user interface is less than nice, the documentation sucks [why can't Wolfram publish a list of all the settable options and what each one controls? Someone has to know this stuff], and the whole thing reminds me of the Windows registry disaster.)
EDIT: Perhaps I wasn't clear. I know about the TicksStyle option to the Plot command. But I would like to set one default somewhere that will by default use (say) 14 point red labels for tick labels in
Graphics, and any other 2-D Graphics objects you can think of.
