Is it possible to set the font size for all labels in a plot? I have been able to set the font family changing the internal parameters of matplotlib

from matplotlib import rc

I'd like to change the size as well, so that all labels created with 'text' are the same size (note that I want to use TeX in labels)

A quite simple way without touching matplotlib configuration:

kwds = {'color':'red','fontsize':16,'fontweight':'bold','rotation':30}
G = Graphics()
G += text('TEST',(2,1),**kwds)
G += text('TEST',(-2,1),**kwds)

you need the two astherics? I mean, writing just kwds will not work too?

Have you tried adding 'size' : number to your font dictionary?

Adding 'size' : number seems to have no effect.
