Description

A function to set up a default style for plots, and useful values for maintaining that style.

defaultStyle() sets the background, foreground, line width and point style.

The foreground color, which should be used for plotting, is available as foregroundColor. The background color is available as backgroundColor. And the colour for axes, legends and titles is available as overlayColor. You'll need to specify col.ticks as overlayColor manually, unfortunately.

The width for lines is available as lineLwd, the point style as pointPch, the point size as pointCex, and the label size as labelCex.

In the example, note the specification of frame.plot=FALSE and the manual specification of the axis col and col.ticks.
