After saving in GUI, how can I get the oo-interface?

Arnar -

I presume you are using Tk.
This is a known bug under Tk, that is apparently difficult to solve.
John Hunter looked into it a year back or so, but couldn't find help
from Tk experts that may know the solution.
Oddly enough, I have written my own GUI in Tk, where I modified the
toolbar, and I don't have the problem.

If this could be solved, I would be very happy,

Mark

Hi list

It looks like I cant change any properties of a matplotlib figure/axis
after I saved the figure
using the GUI. At least I cant use gca(), and gcf(). It works fine if
the save (e.g., figure.savefig('foo'))
was performed in the oo interface

Does anybody else have a problem with this (code below)?

Actually, I am using the GTK (Agg) backend. But thanks for replying.

Well, that is very odd. Do Tk and GTK have the same problem? Was this known?
Is there a more substantial problem here than a backend problem?

I'm pretty sure this is bug w/ tkagg is fixed in svn, because we
reverted to the old file save dialog that was causing it. I am
surprised to hear that it is on gtk or gtkagg, since I've never hear
any reports of this. In any case 0.87 is over a year old now, so I
wonder if Arnar could upgrade.

Thanks, Mark and John, I will look into a trunk version of matplotlib
when I get to a chance.
BTW, as far as I recall, I had the same troubles with Ubuntu Gutsy
(runs v. 0.90.1).
