Octave currently confuses me with plotting issues.
I had written a script that I last used in version 5.1.0. It produces a more or less fixed kind of plot with varying data. The same code and data makes the (what I thought was a nicely formatted) plot look different with my currently installed version 6.3.0.
- All lines appear thicker. Fine - this was announced in the release notes for version 6.
- The font size is larger. As a result, the entire proportions of the plot look odd and the x axis label of the bottom chart does not fit into the figure area.
- The top and the bottom charts have different widths. The width is set to 1-2*x1 for both charts, and x1 does not change.
What worries me are points 2) and 3). What are the reasons for those differences? Do I need to change the font size and all the axis position values (the latter being a look-up table based on the font size) in the code to make the two plots and all labels fit again in Octave 6.3? Or is there another way?
