Hello all. I have R2013b running on a Mac (OS X 10.8.5) and am running into trouble changing the font size and weight of the axis tick labels. Here is the code I'm using:
load('carsmall')
v4 = Cylinders==4 ;
figure ;
boxplot(MPG,v4,'labels',{'v6+','v4'})
set(gca,'FontSize',14,'FontWeight','bold')
When I run this, the Y-axis tick labels change to 14-point font but they are not bolded. The X-axis tick labels do not change at all. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the delayed reply here; I was expecting an email notification and never got one. The variable Cylinders is a 100x1 double, and the second line generates a 100x1 logical with TRUE for observations with four cylinders. When used as the second argument in boxplot, it acts essentially as a categorical variable.
