Hi Delaney,

Seems like you guys have custom plot settings for ipython notebooks when using matplotlib (using full notebook width for plots, and also much prettier). Would it be possible to share those settings?

Hey there,

I haven't tested this snippet, but it's what I can find that we do to modify the plots. Let me know if it works for you:

import seaborn as sns  
import matplotlib as mpl  
        'legend.frameon': True,  
mpl.rc('figure', figsize=(14, 8))  

Thanks for the prompt reply! That did the trick.

Hi Delaney,

I actually have the same problem as Akshay, and unfortunately the code you provided didn't solve it.
In particular, I have problems with the grid (which is not composed by rectangles of the same dimension) and with the limits of the x and y axes.
Could you possibly share the settings?
