When I used SAS 9.1.3, I can use the CGM font "hwcgm001" in gplot.
but in SAS 9.2 I can't, no such font in SAS system. So what kind of CGM font we can use? I tried 'arial' but it is not good choice. Any help?
My recommendation would be to use ODS RTF, which, I believe creates an EMF or WMF format image that is embedded in the RTF file. Since both Word 2003 and Word 2007 can open and render RTF files, you might like the look better than using the CGM driver without GSTYLE. AND, if you did use GSTYLE, then your ARIAL font (or Albany AMT Freetype font -- installed with SAS 9.2) might look much nicer.
proc gplot data=sashelp.shoes;
plot sales * inventory=region / name='reg';
where region in
('Canada', 'Asia', 'Pacific','Western Europe')
and sales lt 500000;
title f="Albany AMT" 'Selected Regions';
ods _all_ close;
If you do have SAS 9.2, there are lots of improvements to font rendering and style usage that make your output SO much nicer when you do use SAS/GRAPH. Once you get your RTF file opened in Microsoft Word, you should be able to right click on the image and do some minor formatting and resizing of the object in Word.
