I like the plot pane in VSCode, and I wish to use it by default. I also love how GLMakie plots scale up and down in size as I ajust the width of the plotting pane.
But sometimes I want to interact with the plot, for data-inspection, panning or zooming. I used to be able to call
current_figure() in the buildt-in terminal, and I would get a standalone window that is interactable. Now, it just creates a new plot in the plotting pane.
I know that I can change the backend to
WGLMakie to get interactivity in the build-in plotting pane, but
- It seems less responsive and stable,
- When interacting with a plot, it is nice to have the standalone window fill the screen, and
- I prefer not having to juggle two backends.
So is there a way to get a single plot in the standalone window, while still using the buildt-in plot pane by default?
