Dear Ilka,
Thank you for your clarification.
The matter is really in that i have to tune a style of drawing, say, 2x2 hists in a canvas for presentation. I'm not satisfied with the size of labels and titles. As this procedure does not have an everyday feature, it will be reasonable to have an option description at hand. After all it's the matter of taste(say, one prefer to read a header file).

I do not insist, just i was interested.       
                                              Regards, Valery.
