Hi, In my script a variable number of graphs is generated. I want to place them in one column with arbitrary number of rows onto an A4 canvas (for pdf export). Unfortunately the figsize directive seems to have no effect. The figure is always 8x6 inch. Which code do I have to use in this case? My minimal code: ####################################### import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from matplotlib.backends.backend_pdf import PdfPages import numpy as np x = np.arange(10) y = np.arange(10) fig_width_cm = 21 # A4 page fig_height_cm = 29.7 inches_per_cm = 1 / 2.58 # Convert cm to inches fig_width = fig_width_cm * inches_per_cm # width in inches fig_height = fig_height_cm * inches_per_cm # height in inches fig_size = [fig_width, fig_height] pdf = PdfPages('outfile.pdf') fig = plt.figure(figsize = fig_size) allplots = 3 # This is the variable number of subplots f, axarr = plt.subplots(allplots, 1) for plot in range(allplots): axarr[plot].plot(x+plot, y) pdf.savefig() pdf.close()
