Plot width settings in ipython notebook

MatplotlibServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Using plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"], we can get the width setting.

Steps

  • To get the plot width setting, use plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] statement.

  • Override the plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] with a tuple (12, 9).

  • After updating the width, get the updated width using plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"].

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
print("Before, plot width setting:", plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"])
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = (12, 9)
print("Before, plot width setting:", plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"])
