graph and table fonts went off using a different machine

Hi, has anybody encountered this problem?

When I ran the same codes on a different machine, the graph and table setups such as title/footnote fonts, line thickness and so on were all off. Below is the testing that I have done.

Ran the same release of SAS on different machines -> went off.
Ran different release on the same machine -> went off.
Ran different release on different machines -> went off.

Anybody knows the solution? Thanks!

Re: graph and table fonts went off using a different machine

Hi:
It is entirely possible that the output would look different on two different machines, or using two different releases of SAS, depending on:
1) the operating system
2) the version of SAS
3) the GOPTIONS or ODS GRAPHICS options that might be in effect for either machine
4) whether you are using device based graphics or template based graphics
5) if using device-based graphics, whether the device for viewing on the screen was the same on both machines
6) if template-based graphics, whether the ODS style being used was the same on both machines
7) if running SAS 9.2, was the GSTYLE option turned ON or OFF???

There was a reworking of the way that graphics are handled between SAS 9.1.3 and SAS 9.2. For one thing, ALL graphics in SAS 9.2 use ODS style template information (if the GSTYLE option is ON). This means that the same code would look different in SAS 9.1.3 and SAS 9.2.

Without more specifics or seeing your code, it is hard to say what's going on. In addition, SAS/GRAPH questions are really more appropriate to the SAS/GRAPH and ODS GRAPHICS forum: http://support.sas.com/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=51 where many SAS/GRAPH experts hang out. But in order to answer your question, someone would really need to know:
-- System1: what machine, what OS, what device
-- System2: what machine, what OS, what device
-- what versions of SAS are involved
-- what GOPTIONS or ODS GRAPHICS options are in effed
-- what style templates are in effect
-- what's the code ( this forum posting shows you how to post SAS code so the indentation stays in effect:
