reset_par: Reset graphical options in 'par' to factory defaults.

Description Usage Details See Also


Reset the par to R's defaults.




Some of par's settings are readonly. These are obviously not reset.

Settings stored in par are device-dependent. In practice, most settings in par are initially the same accross devices. Exceptions we noted are:

  • bg: background color

  • fin: figure region dimensions

  • mai: margin size (inches)

  • pin: current plot dimensions (inches)

  • plt: coordinates of the plot region as fractions of the current figure region

  • ps: point size of text (but not symbos)

Consequently, these options are currently not reset by calling reset_par()
