[Ifeffit] Data being overwritten in Artemis history window

Your plotting problem seems like an issue with your computer or your video card. I'm unable to reproduce it on any of my computers.

Hi Bruce,

The history seems to be working fine now, but I'll let you know if I encounter any more issues, thanks.

As for the plots - I'm still experiencing the same issue, sometimes a line disappears; changing GNUPlot terminal doesn't seem to fix this. At the end of the day I think it's a problem I can live with, I only encounter it occasionally when I'm trying to zoom in to select a specific point accurately for something and I can scroll enough to get the line back...

I just pushed a fix for this to github and posted new windows installer
candidates at


If you see any other questionable behavior in the history window let me
know. I think I understood the ramifications of the fix I made, but I am
not 100% certain.

The windows installers also include the most recent version of gnuplot.
  Hopefully that will address your problem regarding zooming and

If it does not, try changing the gnuplot->terminal configuration
parameter to "qt".  qt is one of the other terminal options in the new
version of gnuplot.  It makes a pretty plot, but I like the controls on
the wxt terminal more.  If you are unsatisfied with that, try setting it
to "windows", which is the third (and to my eye, the worst) of the three
plot terminal options.  Hopefully one of them will work for you.
