Re: fine for line_plot, but not for stack_plot

Hi Jihoon,

Indeed, the mailing list is still quite new, there hasn’t been much discussion yet - so it’s great that you start using it. I hope that your issue will encourage others to post their questions and ideas here!

Regarding whether to use GitHub issues or this mailing list - whatever a user feels more comfortable with! It should be the responsibility of developers and more experienced users responding to questions to make any relevant cross-references (as I do below).

About the issue: I think that is related to the latest version of matplotlib - see issue #281 where Jarmo reports a similar problem for scatter(). Can you check which version of matplotlib you have installed, and if it is more recent, downgrade to 3.0.2? It this solves your problem, please add a comment to the issue that it also affects stack-plots.

If that’s not the underlying issue for your problem: please start a new issue, where we can discuss other causes (for such discussions, I think that GitHub issues are better suited than the mailing list).

Hi all,

I see almost no one in this forum, so I am not sure whether this is for filing issues or not. But I give it a try. (If not here, should it be on GitHub?)

I am trying to plot a stacked plot and getting an error, while I find it working fine with a line plot. I expect they should work in the same setting, but they aren't. Why?
