## [Matplotlib-devel] 2017-02-13 phone call notes

 Folks,Continuing to experiment with exactly how to do these notesRyan May, Eric Firing, Thomas Caswell, Nelle Varoquaux** [[mpl:8032]] - Nelle suggests we replace dots with _actually_ dotted (round dots) - Eric points out it was never super dottedConclusions: - get rid of clipping - make the 'dotted' pattern square - adjust the rest of the patterns to scale for dropping clipping - make sure all default patterns are commensurate (2 '--' to 4 ':' to 1 '-.') Other comments - merge the loosening of the `grid.linestyle` rcparam to accept dash patterns for 2.0.1 - merge the 'loose' version of patterns for 2.1 - can get 'true dotted' with =dash_capstyle = 'round'= + =[.000001, 1.5]= as the dash pattern** code for playing with dash patterns#+BEGIN_SRC python  import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  from cycler import cycler  plt.ion()  fig, ax = plt.subplots()  patterns = cycler('dashes', [(1, 1), (1.1, 1.1), (1, 2), (1, 3)]) * cycler('lw', [1, 1.5, 2, 3, 7, 10])  plt.rcParams['lines.dash_capstyle'] = 'butt'  for j, m in enumerate(patterns):      ax.plot([0, 1], [100 - j, 100 - j], **m, label=(str(m)))      ax.legend()#+END_SRC#+BEGIN_SRC python  import matplotlib.pyplot as plt  from cycler import cycler  plt.ion()  fig, ax = plt.subplots()  patterns = cycler('lw', [1, 1.5, 2, 3, 7, 10])  * cycler('linestyle', ['--', ':', '-.'])  plt.rcParams['lines.dash_capstyle'] = 'butt'  for j, m in enumerate(patterns):      ax.plot([0, 1], [100 - j, 100 - j], **m, label=(str(m)))  ax.legend()#+END_SRC _______________________________________________ Matplotlib-devel mailing list [hidden email] https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/matplotlib-devel
