Adjusting Key Parameters in R


The R base library has very powerful graphical capabilities. While you can produce pretty much any type of graph with a couple of lines of code, the default layout and look of the graph is often very basic. Sometimes, you may run into problems such as axis labels and titles getting chopped off at the edges or the legend size or position may mask part of your graph.

  • Setting plot background colors
