Font sizes and margins changed in v8.2.2?

Hello,

The question mark in the subject line is there because the behaviour I 
am seeing may be due to changes in my computer (upgrade from RHE5 to RHE6).

I have a multiple-plot-per-window plot command that looks like:

     index++
     pdi = PLOT( $
       sensor_channel, y, $
       LAYOUT = [ n_col, n_row, index ], $
       CURRENT = owin )

which gave me the output I wanted - a nice looking grid of n_col x n_row 
plots:
http://ftp.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/jcsda/CRTM/.plots/old.png

However, since I got v8.2.2 installed, the same code produced the 
following output:
http://ftp.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/jcsda/CRTM/.plots/new.png
i.e. wide+short with a very large title font.

To get similar looking output in my v8.2.2 install I have to do the 
following:

     index++
     pdi = PLOT( $
       sensor_channel, y, $
       LAYOUT = [ n_col, n_row, index ], $
       MARGIN = [0.125,0.16,0.05,0.1], $
       FONT_SIZE = 9, $
       CURRENT = owin )

i.e. add the MARGIN keyword and FONT_SIZE property.

Any insights as to whether this is an issue with IDL 8.2.2, or with my 
computer (somehow, waving hands in air here)?

Thanks for any info.

cheers,

paulv

Don't know. But, this *could* be the difference between Helvetica and 
DejaVu Sans fonts. I can't remember what you moved up from or when the
DejaVu font was made the default.

Cheers,

David

The Exelis website still states "IDL�s default TrueType font is 12 point 
Helvetica regular."
(http://www.exelisvis.com/docs/Using_TrueType_Fonts.html)

And I confirmed that the default font being used is Helvetica (via the 
FONT_NAME keyword).

BTW, how does one set the default font in IDL? There doesn't appear to 
be a SETFONT command. Just a SHOW-one.

This font/margin issue only seems to appear with multiple plots/window. 
When I do a single plot all the font sizes and margins are as they 
appeared in my v8.2.0/RHE5 setup.

This'll teach me to upgrade two things at the same time.

cheers,

paulv
