Axes Appearance

From the Setup Menu:


In the axes appearance window you can edit how the X,Y and Z axis lines are rendered and labeled in the Setup window. This may occasionally be useful when preparing illustrations for teaching or publication.

  • Axes are provided for the Eye and Plaque reference frames.
  • In the Select reference frame control group select which set of axes you want to edit, and if you want those axes to appear in the Setup window.
  • In the Lines control group you can customize the line length, thickness, smoothing and color. Note: The line length parameter refers to the axis length from the origin for both the positive and negative directions, so the total axis length drawn will be twice the value entered.
  • In the Labels control group select which lines will have labels and the label size. Note: the simple axes labels X, Y and Z are rendered using vectors rather than the point based fonts used for more complex labels.
