Using custom default settings
Home Documentation SmileLab Scripting Making graphs by script QuickPlotLib Using custom default settings  
When you make a graph with QuickPlotLib, the graph comes in some preset format. The format specifies such things as the window's size, the font size for the axes' labels, or the curve's color. If some of the settings do not suit your need, you can change any property of the graph on the spot: either by script, or with a traditional dialog box.
To open the settings dialog for a graph, pull down the contextual menu (ctrl-click) in the graph then select Edit settings. Click here for more details.
You may also want to make and apply your own preset. For instance, when making a graph for a review which requires graphs of a specific size, you would load the corresponding preset so that the routines in QuickPlotLib directly produce directly the graphs in the required format. The templates is the system to manage your preset formats.
The templates
Each class of object can be given a template, a file which is easy to edit, which specifies where a new object should read its settings. When you specify nothing SmileLab use a set of default templates. You can change those default templates, or you can make your own templates and instruct QuickPlotLib to use them instead of the default.
The following pages tell you, respectively, where the templates are stored, how to instruct QuickPlotLib to use a given template, and how to make your own templates.
