I have been running into an issue with the annotation of the plot. After I raw.plot() and press “a” to get the annotation menu. If I click “Add Description” if completely freezes the plot permanently. The only way to stop it is to go into task manager. I have been trying to add a “BAD” description to cut out a bad portion of data, but whenever I try I freeze the program. I would like to add that MNE and spyder still function fine, but all plots that have been made are frozen. And yes, I am plotting in a separate window from spyder if that is a possible source of the issue.
Has any one else seen this and is their a way around it.
as a side note I have also found that the plot itself seems backwards in color. With the offset of raw.plot(bgcolor=‘w’, color=‘k’) I get a black background with white traces. If I type in the opposite raw.plot(bgcolor=‘k’, color=‘w’) I get a white background with black traces.
I don’t really have an idea for a solution. I just remembered another Spyder-related issue, that was solely appearing when starting from a spyder-console. It was resolved over time by unknown cause. @Dannapnt1 Are you running on the latest spyder-kernels?
Hi @richard, Yes, I believe this particular issue with the coloring of the plots is due to one of the spyder preferences for dark mode, particularly for the editor being changed in an update. Although the typical color change schemes in preferences in the appearances menu of is still there, but there was another color scheme option in the editor menu of the preferences that controlled plots in separate windows. It seems to have disappeared in newer versions of spyder. I did use the Windows download MNE package, so I figured this might be a problem others are having but it could also just be the alignment of the different anaconda dependencies on my computer. I only get this on my windows machine, my linux cluster does not have this problem.
As for the freezing when I try to annotate and add a new annotation description, that happens for me on both windows and linux.
