xkcd doesn't seem to work in MacOSX backend

Hello list,

I don’t seem to get xkcd to work in the MacOSX backend. When I try to make a plot I get a nice white figure with nothing on it. Here’s what I did:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

%matplotlib # responds with Using matplotlib backend: MacOSX

plt.plot([1,2,3]) # gives white figure with nothing on it

When I do a kernel restart and specify the qt backend it works fine (so I have a workaround), but I presume it should work, right?

Thanks,

Mark

Which version of matplotlib are you using?

Isn’t the XKCD stuff baked into the Agg backend. Is it even possible to produce XKCD svg or PDFs?

I wouldn't be surprised -- that's some pretty fancy stuff!

To the OP -- maybe you can use the cocoaagg back-end...

Like I said, it works fine when I select the QT backend. So I have a workaround.
I was just wondering wether it was supposed to work with the MacOSX backend.

Does anybody know?

If so, I’ll file a bug report.
