Is this example from the docs what you want? http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference...

Or even just `plot(x^2,(x,0,2), fontsize=20)`

Note that these answers are for *sage*commands. If you are looking for how to deal with matplotlib plots, it might be better to post to the matplotlib help list. Or personally, I usually just look at the matplotlib gallery (http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/gal...) and find something close to what I want.

Yes, I was talking about the direct usage of Matplotlib. An currently the only solution I found is this one: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6390393/matplotlib-make-tick-labels-font-size-smaller

yticks(fontsize=SIZE) should work:

```
import pylab
import matplotlib
pylab.clf()
#pylab.rc('text', fontsize=18) #This is a 'bad' but effective way to change the default font size
pylab.plot(xdata, ydata, '--')
pylab.xlabel(r"$x$",fontsize=24)
pylab.ylabel(r"$y$",fontsize=24)
pylab.yticks(fontsize=40)
pylab.yticks(fontsize=40)
pylab.savefig('transspeclin.pdf', format='pdf')
pylab.savefig('transspeclin')
pylab.show()
```
