I am trying to get a good setup to do scientific python on windows 7. To be complete, I am using Anaconda for Python package management, and emacs 25.2 (the native windows build from GNU, not the cygwin build). My goal is to use elpy, with ipython as the Python shell. The problem is figure windows.
I have found some similar issues reported before, but the solutions don't work for me. In particular, my init.el has (elpy-enable) and (elpy-use-ipython).
So elpy and ipython work fine, until I do figure(1). I get a figure window, control is back at the ipython prompt, but the figure window says "not responding." And if I plot something it doesn't appear. Various attempts to use ion() and show() haven't worked.
