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.

v4 = Cylinders==4
I doubt this line of code does what you think it does. What is the variable Cylinders, and what do you expect this line of code does?
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.
