.. _set-current-background:
Set the background of the curret plot
--------------------------------------------------

Go to ``View->Preview`` and chose the aspect ratio and size of the final product.

Your screen display will be adjusted accordingly

.. _get-colorbar-editor:
Open the colorbar editor
------------------------------
Open the colormap editor (``View->Color Map Editor``) and chose the top right icon (a color bar with an ``e`` in the icon).
.. image:: prettify-colorbar/get-colorbar-editor.png
Choose the gear at the top right of the menu (activates the display of less *important* aspects like the top/bottom value labels), insert a more precise label text in the ``Title`` field, e.g. "Ocean surface speed (m/s)" and set the format for the range labels (top/bottom values) to ``%.0f`` (floating-point with zero digits behind the ``.``). Use ``Apply`` to check your results and finally leave the menu with ``OK``.
