bbox_inches='tight' clips figure.suptitle #688
In ipython for the qtconsole and notebook, we send inline figures using
as seen here.
However, this produces truncated figure titles. Consider this code:
f, ax = plt.subplots() ax.plot(rand(100)) ax.set_title('Axis title') f.suptitle('Figure title');
which produces this in the notebook:
A slightly more complicated example, using basemap, not only truncates the title but also all the x and y labels. We show it here for reference, but as @jswhit (basemap author) pointed out over email, basemap labels are located at arbitrary positions and so it's harder for matplotlib to take them into consideration.
from mpl_toolkits.basemap import Basemap lon0, lat0, lon1, lat1 = (84.38, 26.22, 88.9, 29.8) resolution = 'i' parallels = np.linspace(lat0, lat1, 5) meridians = np.linspace(lon0, lon1, 5) f, ax = plt.subplots() m = Basemap(lon0, lat0, lon1, lat1, resolution=resolution, ax=ax) m.drawcountries(color=(1,1,0)) # country boundaries in pure yellow m.drawrivers(color=(0,1,1)) # rivers in cyan m.bluemarble() # NASA bluemarble image m.drawmeridians(meridians, labels=[0,0,0,1], fmt='%.2f') m.drawparallels(parallels, labels=[1,0,0,0], fmt='%.2f') f.suptitle('The Himalayas');
While we noticed this in the notebook, the problem will be present for any figure saving operation that supports
As discussed in the mailing list thread about this problem, mpl should probably use the position of 'official' artists such figure suptitles in the computation of the bounding box.
