# Plot titles

 2 I know about the text function, but this has to be inside the plot. How would one make titles for plots? Thank you. asked Dec 12 '10 Eviatar Bach 474 ● 2 ● 10 ● 24 niles 3354 ● 5 ● 38 ● 92 http://nilesjohnson.net/ actually, I was just wondering something similar -- I'd like to add a title to a GraphicsArray object niles (Dec 12 '10)

 2 I have sometimes used "convert" to add text to frames containing both 2d and 3d plots. I don't know if this is helpful or not, but It's the only way I know of to work with text on 3d animations (maybe someone can suggest a better way). A code snippit: frame.save(filename) # Need to move the frame file temporarily move_cmnd = 'mv ' + filename + ' ' + filename + '_' #print('move_cmnd: %s' %move_cmnd) os.system(move_cmnd) # This is the only way I can figure out to put text # on a tachyon frame. You need to do it AFTER saving # the frame above. label = title label += ' Seconds: %.4f' %times[time_index] convert_cmnd = 'convert -font Helvetica -fill gray ' #convert_cmnd = 'convert -font Courier -fill gray ' #convert_cmnd = 'convert -font Bookman-Light -fill gray ' convert_cmnd += '-stroke gray -pointsize 16 ' convert_cmnd += '-draw \'text 100,50 ' convert_cmnd += '"' + label + '"' +'\'' convert_cmnd += ' ' + filename + '_ ' + filename #print('convert_cmnd: %s'%convert_cmnd) os.system(convert_cmnd) del_cmnd = 'rm -f ' + filename + '_' #print('del_cmnd: %s'%del_cmnd) os.system(del_cmnd)  posted Dec 12 '10 Mike Witt 455 ● 4 ● 11 ● 26
 0 We should wrap the matplotlib title option to plots. This would be a pretty straightforward thing to do. I've made it trac #10512. Note that you could always explicitly use a text object to make a title, but it's a little awkward. posted Dec 22 '10 Jason Grout 3185 ● 7 ● 27 ● 71
