R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To make a plot title partially bold using ggplot2, we can use bquote function inside labs function and then changing the default font to bold using bold function as shown in the below examples. While using these functions we need to make sure that the title that we want to bold should be inside circular brackets appropriately.

Example

Consider the below data frame −

> x<-rnorm(20)
> y<-rnorm(20)
> df<-data.frame(x,y)
> df
