To get an interactive plot of a pyplot when using PyCharm, we can take the following steps −

• Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.

• Set the background style.

• Plot the data on the axes.

• To display the figure, use show() method.

## Example

import matplotlib as mpl
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True

mpl.use('Qt5Agg')
