FontSlant

FontSlant

is an option for Style, Cell, and related constructs that specifies how slanted characters in text should be.

Details

  • Standard settings are Plain and Italic.
  • On most computer systems, settings such as FontSlant->"Oblique" can also be used.
  • With the "Oblique" setting, each character typically has the same basic form as with Plain, but is slanted. With the Italic setting, the basic form is different.
