# How to change the color of a title?

### Bob Choy (view profile)

Im using the title(STRING) function to insert a title in the graph I made with the plot funcion. But I need the string to have a certain color, in this case I actually want to have the title saying:

"Month1(in magenta), Month2(in cyan), Month3(in red)"

Obviously I dont want the brackets to be there, its just so you understand what colors I want. How can I do this?

Thank you.

P.S: If there is any easier way of placing a small colored label/title in a graph other than the title(STRING) function, please do tell me!

```title('\color{magenta}Month1, \color{cyan}Month2, \color{red}Month3')
```

It is hard to imagine, that there could be an easier solution. Isn't this nice?

Yes, Bob, this is a problem and it would be a good idea to post such important information in the question already. Please note that this is Matlab forum, such that your question is off-topic.

Im sorry, I didn't know this was such a deep offense, especially when most people learn octave just because its free, so they can work with matlab later on... But I guess rules are rules, and my question is going to be left unanswered.

Thank you for your support anyways.

It is not an offense at all and I really appreciate Octave for some jobs. But it wastes your and my time, when I post a solution concerning Matlab, while you work with another software without explaining this. What would you think, if you spend some time (although it is a minute only) in an Octave forum to answer my question, and I reveal afterwards, that I'm working with Excel?

The GUI handling of Octave and Matlab differ substantially. If you find a good Octave forum, feel free to post the link here, such that we can suggest it for future questions.
