When I plot a graphics and resize it later with a mouse, x11 would redraw graphics, while wxt only scales it up or down (see attachment wxt-resize.png), making it unreadable at small sizes. Is there any chance to fix the behaviour in wxt, to match the one in x11? (AquaTerm is also only scaling down the image, but AquaTerm has many other "problems" as well.)

    That little tool button at the top left of your plot window, with the two arrows circling round each other, is a replot button. Hit it and your plot will be redrawn to fill the new window shape.

    I see. But couldn't it be done automatically (after mouse button is released at least)?

    Moving this to Feature Requests.

    The qt terminal has a setting in the tool widget that controls whether or not the plot is redrawn after the window is resized. I imagine a similar toggle could be added to the wxt tool widget.
