Version 3.51 for Macintosh
PLEASE NOTE: All work created in KaleidaGraph must use only black, grays, and white.
Please note: Some journals now require that color be submitted in RGB color mode. To learn more about the RGB workflow click here.
When creating graphics in a program such as KaleidaGraph for output to an imagesetter or platesetter, it is extremely important that the person creating the illustration have a thorough understanding of imaging in a prepress environment. There are many complex problems that can occur at output if paths are set up improperly, colors are indicated incorrectly, or other elements are constructed improperly. The more complicated the illustration, the greater the possibility of problems at output, and therefore the increased need for expertise and experience.
1) Go to Format > Plot Color... and set the Frame and Grid to Black and the Interior and Background to None.
2) Go to Plot > Plot Style and change all variables to Black or shades of gray.
3. There are other areas where color is selected. For example, Plot > Error Bars. But as you can see, the changes are done similarly in each new area.
1) Select Format > Text Options
2) Set the text size to the print size for the final figure.
3. Select Plot > Set Plot Size... and set the Frame Size to 1 inch larger than the print size (one or two columns). This is a general rule. You may have to tweak it to get it exact. In the example below, I wanted a 4 inch wide figure.
4. Verify the plot size by moving it to the upper left corner.
