Hi Valery,

My answer to you was very short. In fact there is a user interface in ROOT via which you can change the objects' attributes. Please use View menu / Editor to activate the ROOT graphics editor. When you click on different objects in the canvas (histograms, axis, pad, etc.) the user interface changes according to the selected object and gives you the possibility to change the attributes of the selected object. Another way to see the meaning of the used graphical options is to generate a macro (.C) via File menu /Save or SaveAs. Executing this macro you will get the same picture. You can edit the macro and re-execute it again.

I hope this message is more helpful.

Best regards, Ilka
