Annotate Text Problem

Both the text from "trim(left(avg_emp))" and "correlation: &rate1" appear in the gplot.
However, the text from "trim(left(avg_emp))" is very small.
How can I fix the font size of "trim(left(avg_emp))"?

proc corr data=wes5 PEARSON noprint outp=newp;
var rate1 pf2;
where item2=&qn;
run;

data _null_;
set newp;
if _NAME_="pf2" then call symput('rate1',trim(left(rate1)));
run;
%put ########## rate1=&rate1;

data anno1;
set wes5 end=last;
length function color $8 style $20 text $20;
retain xsys ysys '2' hsys '3' when 'b';
x=pf2;
y=rate1;
function='label';
x=pf2;
y=rate1;
size=3.5;
color='black';
text=trim(left(avg_emp));
x=75;y=16;
size=3;
text="correlation: &rate1";
output;
run;

goptions device=ACTIVEX;
proc gplot data=wes5 anno=anno1;

Re: Annotate Text Problem

Just glancing at the code you use to create your annotate data set, it looks like you're using the correct things to control the annotated text size ...

hsys='3'; says that the number specified in the 'size' variable is % of screen
size=3 and size=3.5 seem "reasonable" numbers.

So, does the size= have no effect on the graph, if you change it?

Try this with dev=gif ... perhaps this is one of the things that dev=activex only "partially supports"(?)

Re: Annotate Text Problem

I found the problem.
For whatever reason this didn't work the first time I tried it.

function='label';
x=pf2;
y=rate1;
size=3.5;
color='black';
text=trim(left(avg_emp));
output;
function='label';
x=75;y=16;
size=3;
text="correlation: &rate1";
output;

Re: Annotate Text Problem

Do you know how to make the dots on my graph go away?
They're located in the middle of each value from avg_emp (outputted from text in annotate output).

symbol i=none v=dot;
symbol2 i=none v=dot c='CXD9576E' h=0;
symbol3 i=none v=dot c='CXBFBFBF' h=0;
SYMBOL1 i=none v=dot h=0.01 c='blue' I=r;
proc gplot data=wes5 anno=anno1;
plot rate1*pf2/ noframe nolegend haxis=axis1 vaxis=axis2 href=&vline
