$FormatType

As of Version 6.0, $FormatType has been superseded by explicit settings for FormatType in Graphics and related functions.

$FormatType

gives the default format type to use for text that appears in graphics.

Details

  • The default setting for the standard notebook front end is $FormatType=StandardForm.
  • The default setting for the textbased front end is $FormatType=OutputForm.
  • A common alternative setting is TraditionalForm.
  • Boxbased format types such as StandardForm and TraditionalForm can be used only when a notebook front end is present.
  • $FormatType gives the default value for the FormatType option in graphics.
