Is it possible to set the extension .pdf as defaut when I save
image using the matplotlib bar. My coworkers are always saving
image in png and it's really ugly!
Interesting request. Looking through the backends, it appears
that only the Cairo backend currently supports a configurable
rcParam for the default filetype ('cairo.format'). All
backends implement a "get_default_filetype()" method for their
canvases, but most of them have that default hard-coded as
"png". This really only makes sense for backends like agg,
pdf, ps and such.
Devs - Maybe we should consider fixing this for the
non-fileformat specific backends? Do we want an rcParam for
each backend? Or a single rcParam for default filetypes and
