This code:

f[x_, a_, b_] := a x - b x^3
Manipulate[{Plot[f[x, a, b], {x, -2, 2}], 
  n = -\[Integral]f[x, a, b] \[DifferentialD]x;
  Plot[n, {x, -2, 2}, PlotRange -> Automatic]},
       {{a, 1/2, "control parameter"}, -1, 2, 0.1},
       {{b, 1/4, "control parameter 2"}, -1, 2, 0.01}]

Produces this: (if one starts automatic play)

But this looks unprofessional because of annoying up-down movements.

What can be done to stop shaking?

  • $\begingroup$ Instead of Automatic, you must set an explicit PlotRange. $\endgroup$ Jun 9, 2015 at 10:18
  • $\begingroup$ @Guesswhoitis. But what if I want to keep variable plot range? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You'll have to provide for a way to vary the PlotRange somewhere in your Manipulate[]. $\endgroup$ Jun 9, 2015 at 10:27

use ImagePadding as in

f[x_, a_, b_] := a x - b x^3
Manipulate[
 {
  Plot[f[x, a, b], {x, -2, 2}, ImagePadding -> 5],
  n = -Integrate[f[x, a, b] , x];
  Plot[n, {x, -2, 2}, PlotRange -> Automatic, ImagePadding -> 5]
  },
 {{a, 1/2, "control parameter"}, -1, 2, 0.1},
 {{b, 1/4, "control parameter 2"}, -1, 2, 0.01}
 ]
