These functions allow customization of Xpose's graphics settings.


change.ab.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE), classic = FALSE)

change.cond.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE)

change.dil.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE)

change.label.par(object, classic = FALSE)

change.lm.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE)

change.misc.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE)

change.pi.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE)

change.smooth.graph.par(object, classic = FALSE)



An object.


A logical operator specifying whether the function should assume the classic menu system. This is an internal option and need never be called from the command line.


An object (classic == FALSE) or null (classic == TRUE).


Settings can be saved and loaded using export.graph.par and import.graph.par, respectively.


  • change.ab.graph.par(): change settings for the line of identity.

  • sets preferences for box-and-whisker plots

  • change.cond.graph.par(): sets preferences for conditioning

  • change.dil.graph.par(): responsible for dilution preferences

  • change.label.par(): responsible for labelling preferences

  • change.lm.graph.par(): responsible for linear regression lines.

  • change.misc.graph.par(): sets basic graphics parameters, including plot type, point type and size, colour, line type, and line width.

  • change.pi.graph.par(): responsible for prediction interval plotting preferences

  • change.smooth.graph.par(): sets preferences for loess smooths.
