Title Styles with SAS/Graph procedures and PDF output

Hi-

I am using proc template to create styles for my SAS/Graph output. Here is a little bit of the code:

proc template;
path sasuser.templat(update) sashelp.tmplmst(read);
define style MDRC_pdf;
parent=styles.minimal;

style TitlesAndFooters from _SELF_ /
color = CX000000
backgroundcolor = CXFFFFFF;

style SystemTitle from _SELF_ /
font = ("Times New Roman", 10pt, bold);

style SystemTitle2 from _SELF_ /
font = ("Times New Roman", 4pt, bold);

style SystemTitle3 from _SELF_ /
font = ("Times New Roman", 12pt, bold);

style GraphTitleText from _SELF_ /
font = ("Times New Roman", 12pt, bold)
color = CX000000;

end;

For HTML and RTF output, my SystemTitle styles are applied when I use title statements in proc gplot. For PDF output, the style for title1 is very large (does not match any of my styles) and the style for the titles 2-x uses the GraphTitleText style.

What style element do I use to style the title1 statement with PDF output? Is there any way to have separate styles for each title statement in PDF output? I am able to do this with regular ODS output but not when I'm using a SAS/Graph procedure.

Thanks for any tips.

Hi:
Not sure what's happening with the style template. You might want to work with Tech Support on that question.

However, you can always use SAS/GRAPH TITLE statement options to make each title have the font/size characteristics that you want:
[pre]
title h=12pt c=black f='Times New Roman' bold 'What size is this title';
title2 h=6pt c=black f='Times New Roman' bold 'what size is title2';

[/pre]
