Setting the size of a polar plot possible?

Is there a way to set the size of a polar plot (similar

Hmmm. I do not believe the plot command takes an axis argument.

Do you mean the "axes" and "subplot" commands which are used to set
the size of the Axes that contains the plot? If so, just pass
polar=True to them, as in

subplot(111, polar=True)
axes([0.2, 0.2, 0.7, 0.7], polar=True)

I am updating the axes doc string.

API users, note that the same applies to fig.add_axes and
