annotate labels in pdf output

Hi,

I am using annotate function=label to label my datapoints on graph (proc gplot as well proc gplot). When I get the output as html the text size of the labels work fine. But for pdf output the text size comes out as very small and doesn't change even after increasing the size in the annotate function. I am using device=Actximg.

Is there an option to manage this?

Thanks.

When an option I set doesn't seem to change in graphic output I looke at the style currently active as it may be setting a font. I would also try using a different Device to see if the same behavior occurs.

Ballardw,

Thank you for your reply.

The style doesn't seem to make a difference, the device does. But I have to use this device (Actximg).

VD - just curious, why do you have to use device=actximg ?

Activex can produce most of the basic charts, but once you start using the more "obscure" features to try to customize the charts, you'll find a lot of things are only partially supported.  I would recommend using device=png (that's the one I use for just about every graph I create).
