I would like to have a bar plot twice as heigh as it is wide. It seems though that setting the aspect ratio is nontrivial. I tried this:
w, h = fig.figaspect (2.0)
but then axis labels or even numbering gets cut off. On the other hand playing with:
does amazingly strange things. The explanation about what the number in the set_aspect function should be is quite vogue in the documentation. Hence my questions:
How to specify the aspect ratio of a figure (in my case containing some bar plots) so that all remaining things (like axis labels) are respected in the final result?
