Several aspects of a plot can be manually configured to customize the static visual properties of the visualization.

Several pre-made themes are provided for convenience. Any theme, including the default, can be manually tweaked by passing a dictionary of the desired changes to .qp.theme. See .qp.theme for the list of built-in themes.

The theme keys that can be changed are outlined below.

Where colours appear, either a 3-value byte array (0xRRGGBB), a 4-value byte array (0xAARRGGBB), or a symbol for a defined colour name from .gg.colour can be used.
