change scalebar and map rose colours

Added by Maria Eugenia 4 months ago

Hello,
I am using GMT4.5.8.

I wonder if there is a possibility to change the colours of the scalebar and the north-pointing map rose. I have an obscure background so I would like them to be white.

I tried with :

pscoast -R -J -Df -W0/0/0 -N1 -I1 -O -S255/255/254 -L-60.89/-34.63/-34.55/5+pwhite -Tf-60.88/-34.555/0.5/1 --HEADER_FONT_SIZE=12 -V >> tc_mend.ps

but it produces a white rectangle around the scalebar.

Thanks in advance,

Eugenia

You will have to change the pen colors and maybe font colors for MAP_DEFAULT_PEN, MAP_TICK_PEN_PRIMARY, FONT_ANNOT_PRIMARY etc (i.e. , their GMT4 equivalents).

Thanks!
I've just set the following before pscoast (which it was the last sentence now):
gmtset BASEMAP_FRAME_RGB white
