I have always create plot files for running gnuplot, instead of running from within gnuplot. e.g.:

I have always had the ability to zoom, scale, toggle-ruler, etc. in the persistent window. Now for some reason, it is like all communication with gnuplot is gone when using a persistent window. It is fine when running from the 'gnuplot>' prompt.

Has anyone else seen this? Any fix? What to check? This is with the standard Version 4.6 patchlevel 3 from the OSS repo (maybe update).


I have the same version running on os 13.1.

When you say "like all communication", do you mean from the
mouse to gnuplot or gnuplot keyboard to the window or both?
