Maybe someone could also mention this bug report in task #14243 ?

I have tested this in Octave 4.2.0.

Some of those issues have been transferred to different bug reports (see comment #3).

One issue seems to still be present, now. I am not sure if it is already taken care of in another bug report. Here is how to reproduce it:

The resulting plot will not increase the fontsize of the x- and ylabels properly. Once you delete the legend objecct, the fontsizes of the labels will then work fine.

The fontname property for FLTK is not specified by a file, but by the actual name of the font. This is not a bug. To set the font in FLTK in minex.m use

There are several simultaneous issues going on. I'm going to break this up into multiple bug reports.

Before pdf export I change the properties FontName and FontSize to my needs.

FN = findall(hF,'-property','FontName') ;
FS = findall(hF,'-property','FontSize') ;
set(FS(),'FontSize',FontSize) ;

This syntax is working with graphics_toolkit("gnuplot") ;

If I use the new fltk toolkit the change of the FontName has no effect. The FontSize is changed accordingly.

If a LEGEND is present an attempt to change the FontSize gives an "invalid handle" error.

See example minex.m for details.
