Title: clipped x-labels due to font size

I use in my application a bigger font with "font configure TkDefaultFont -size 11 -weight bold" and PlotChart 1.6.1. 
In xy-plots the x-label is clipped, since there is a fixed size for the labels and tics (pymax), not a font-dependent size.
User Comments: arjenmarkus added on 2009-03-23 14:41:40:
Hm, I will definitely have to solve this one by querying the font metrics instead of 
assuming some size.

Now the xlabel-text overlaps the xtic-labels-text

Oops, try:

plotconfig xyplot margin bottom $height_in_pixels

The plotconfig command sets configuration options for the class of plots.
So all subsequent XY-plots use that option.

I mean the bottom margin.

Yes, this needs fixing - for the moment you can set the left margin for 
the xy-plots via:

plotconfig xyplot margin left $width_in_pixels
