I’m continuing to explore Plots (mainly 2D for now). Some useful things are missing, others are perhaps only hard to find?
- Figure title – has not been implemented yet. There are some workarounds, but these are somewhat clumsy. Currently, “title” gives the subplot title, as far as I know.
- Specifying several columns in legend panel (like PyPlot can) – it does not always look good to have a long column…
- Support for LaTeX math: PyPlot backend has good support, GR less so. GR LaTeX math looks ugly in the Atom/Juno editor, and in IJulia (perhaps better in saved files?). Also, the GR support of LaTeX is incomplete: it seems to work in title, xlabel, and ylabel, but not in labels.
- If I try to use PyPlot as backend in Atom/Juno, I get an error message related to loading a C-library. GR, on the other hand, works (but with limited LaTeX support…)
– How to specify color, linewidth, line style, etc of grid lines?
– How to specify spatial gap between grid lines? E.g., for Bode plots, the standard is to use equidistant gap between gridlines for the integer exponents (major grid), and logarithmic gap within each of the major grid lines (minor grid). Is this possible (ControlSystems package seems to give equidistant grid lines, only), or do I have to use PyPlot for now to achieve this?
OK – I really appreciate all the work going into visualization tools. And I know there is hectic activity related to v. 0.7/v.1.0. So please do not read this as critique: I rather ask to find out what is currently possible (and what may be in planning…).
