Hi Paula,

It would help if we could see the whole PDF file and even the script.

How are you setting the fonts and the quality?

You really shouldn't need to set the quality, especially if you are using the helvetica or helvetica-bold font.

Also, there shouldn't be a difference in the tickmark fonts whether you are doing XY or contour plots, so the problem must be somewhere else.
Are you setting extra resources in your .hluresfile that might affect the fonts or the quality?

I've tried different fonts but it doesn't help. The quality is already set to high, which is the default. This only happens in my xy plots. The contour plots have high quality text in the title/tickmark labels.
