[GRASS-user] Horizontal legend font size

I want to create a horizontal legend for a raster.
The docs say,
> When using the mouse or at to size & place the legend, a user may create a
> horizontal legend by making the box wider than it is tall.
I read the previous line to mean the only way to create a legend is to use
at and make the box wider than it is tall. Is that correct? Can I make a
legend horizontal without using at=bottom,top,left,right
The docs also say,
> Vertical legends produced with d.legend will place text labels to the right of
> the legend box, horizontal legends will place text below. This text will be
> auto-scaled to fit within the frame, reducing the size of the legend if
> necessary. Legends positioned with the mouse or with the at option will not
> auto-scale text, in order to provide more control to the user.
The last line that says that the text will not auto-scale when using at,
which means that a horizontal legend¹s text will never auto-scale since the
horizontal legend can only be made by using at to create a box that is wider
than it is tall. Am I misinterpreting anything?
My problem is that I get a horizontal legend that looks great except the
text is huge and looks awful.
How can I change the size of the text in the legend?
The following are my commands.
d.rast raster at Temp
d.frame -c frame=leg at=1,10,5,95
d.legend -s range=0,13.5 labelnum=5 at=80,100,5,95 map=raster at Temp
