MagicPlot provides accurate typography in text labels and axes labels.
MagicPlot supports English ligatures in text labels. If you type 'fi', 'fl', etc., those symbols will be shown with ligatures glyphs when you exit edit mode.
MagicPlot supports these ligatures:
Ligature glyphs are included only in some fonts. MagicPlot will display ligatures only if these glyphs are included in used font. You can toggle ligatures in MagicPlot preferences.
MagicPlot can automatically convert these character sequences to special symbols:
--→ en dash (see Em_dash)
---→ em dash
You can toggle this option in MagicPlot Preferences.
The numbers in scientific notation need two special characters if you want the typography to be accurate. These two characters are minus sign and multiplication sign. Many graphing software applications which use simplified typography use letter 'x' and hyphen (-) in numbers instead of typographically correct characters. Simplified typography was mainly used in old applications which do not support Unicode.
MagicPlot can use either correct symbols or simplified. You can change this option in MagicPlot Properties.
The multiplication signs are different in various languages. You can use either '·' or '×' sign.
