when I use the gplot with anno, there is warning in log as follows:
Font ALBANY A could not be used.
Font Albany AMT substituted for font ALBANY A.
But I define the style='ALBANY AMT' in the anno dataset, why it is truncated and cannot distinguished? If I replace the "ALBANY AMT" with "Duplex", it can work without warning, but it is not what I want. I want the annotation dataset with "Arial" font. How can I deal with it? Thanks.

Dear Jag, Thanks for your reply. I have tried, but found that in anno dataset, the style is right. But when use proc gplot it still cannot be distinguished. I also found that the proc gplot may only distinguish the "Software Fonts"(like Duplex) other than "TrueType Fonts"(like Albany AMT).

ok but i believe it will still work, the only change that we could try now is keep the 'Albany AMT' in quotes in the style variable.
style=" 'Alanby AMT' ";
could you please try this

Hi Jag, thanks for your kind help. The problem has been solved. I remove the style= from anno dataset. And add the following options:
GOPTIONS FTEXT='Albany AMT'; And it does work without any warning. I don't figure it out why the fommer one can't work, but anyway, the latter one does work. Thanks a lot !

Annotate data sets with the device procedures such as GPLOT are somewhat picky as to the NAMES of variables for the specific elements. SAS supplies a number of annotate related macros to help with generating appropriate annotate values. Look at the documentation for %Annomac and the related macros it activates.
BUT the most likely cause of your issuw was not setting the LENGTH characteristic long enough to contain the desired text.
If your data set FINAL happened to have a variable named style and the length was 8 characters then when you use: Style='Albany AMT'; the value gets truncated because the previously declared length will only hold "Albany A"
length style $ 20;
etc. to set the length for the STYLE variable before reading in the data set FINAL.
