GUI not responsive (solved)

GUI not responsive (solved)

Postby ruppy on Fri Sep 14, 2012 10:09 am


I currently use Sublime Text for scientific python with MatPlotLib, Nympy, etc.
I find it to be pretty awesome so far, it can definetly outpace Spyder in many ways as a scientific matlab-like IDE environment.

But, there is a very big flaw in the GUIs that display plots.
I don't know if tis GUI is from python, or numpy or matplotlib, but I mean this:


The problem is: When displaying this GUI there is no way to make text input in the GUI, e.g. to save the current image.
Everytime one is entering text, the text appears in the last opend Sublime Text window, although the plot window is focused.

In this screenshot, I wanted to type "bla" in the save as dialog window, but instead it wrote it in the editor.
This is extremely annoying!

Is there any way to avoid/fix this?
I really would appreciate any help!

Okay, I'm sorry this seems to be a known problem with python-GUI and OS X:

For me, I did not even need the fix, provided on this page, but I only had to reinstall python as a framework:

Code: Select all
brew install python --framework
