Problems using the GR framework

Hey guys!

I am doing, “using GR” for the sole reason that I find the plots it makes very pretty. I have a problem:

  1. How do I change line width? I try the following code nothing changes:
using GR

The linewidth does not change (I use Atom / Juno). I am stuck here, which kind of sucks, so I hope someone can guide me through.

I am clear that I can do what I want using Plots.jl - I just want to know why I can’t get it to work with GR directly.

Kind regards

This works
plot(rand(3), linewidth=5)

There is a list of attributes in juliaplots documentation
