Subject: GUI figures in Octave 4.0.3 Mac OS X Capitan

Dear colleagues,

I was happy with my old Octave since 2012, but the new version 4.0 is really 
better ! I moved to the new 10.11 version of OS X last spring, and I tried and 
enjoyed first the Vagrant install of Octave last January, but it was so sluggish 
to open. The new integrated 4.0.3 is so much better : thank you and 
congratulations !

Yet I have a new trouble : both Aqua and Vagrant gave access to figures by their 
window names in a scrolling menu, but the current version (I downloaded and 
installed last week) does not offer this option. Is it a bug due to my 
french-language localization of the package ? Is it a common feature of all 
current 4.0.3 versions ? 

With warm thanks for your service to our community,

sincerely yours,

Yves Elskens

I am not a mac user so that I may not give you adequate replies.
I cannot understand the situation.

Nothing is changed for octave GUI and graphics_toolkit between 
octave 4.0.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 and 4.0.3.

What graphics_toolkit do you use?
If you do not know it, please type


Dear Tatsuro,

thank you for your response. I am using Qt version 4.8.7 ; on starting, Octave ws configured for « x86 64-apple-darwin14.5.0 ». 

The scrolling menu for windows does not list the figure windows with my plots ; it only lists the basic items (see attached screen capture) though I have a figure with a plot. In the Vagrant version, the list of figure windows appeared after item Documentation, if I remember well. 

Sorry for being unable to tell you more. 

Thank you again,

Yves Elskens

I suspect you are using the gnuplot toolkit. Try …

close all
graphics_toolkit qt
plot (rand (3))

and then check the menu for the figure window.
