Thomas, Sergei, list: yes, the zooming works in gnuplot 4.2.3. This is using the app included with octave 3.0.3 under extras. In octave however, rotation works on 3D plots, but no zooming on either 2D or 3D plots, even though octave calls gnuplot and an X11 window pops up titled 'gnuplot'. Is this the situation common to everyone else? thanks, Dan

ok good news.  I went straight to step six and
rotation works as it
should.  To test if things were working, I had been
making a 2D plot and
trying to zoom in by well, trying many things
including holding the left
or right mouse button to draw a box.  No luck, how do
you zoom in? I
tried adding, "set mouse" to my .gnuplot
file to no avail. By the way,
the result of getenv("GNUTERM") is a blank
ans =, although X11, not
aquaterm is what executes and
"__gnuplot_version__" gives "ans = 4.2"
Can you try starting Gnuplot 4.2.3 (I expect you have in /Applications ?) with the following line


then in type a command, eg.

   plot sin (x)

for me zooming works with the right mouse button (click 1
for upper-left, click 2 for lower-right zoom window) or if I use the key-button combination <Apple-key>-(left-mouse-button). Press button
'u' for unzoom.

In order to have mouse-controlled zooming one has to use gnuplot-4.3* to
