This has always bugged me and wondering if there is a fix.
When I evaluate a Plot3D I get a graph as expected. However, when I click the graph with the mouse it resizes to a smaller size. I can then rotate it freely. I find this behavior strange. I illustrated this in the gif below.
In addition, notice that if I evaluate Plot3D again, the image doesn't reset to the big size. I find this strange as well. Shouldn't it resize to big? I illustrated this toward the end of the gif.
Can you explain why the image resizes to small upon clicking it with the mouse? What's the point of this?
Can you explain why the image does not resize to large upon evaluating Plot3D the second time as shown in the gif? This doesn't make sense why it wouldn't reset like everything else.
Is there a way to evaluate Plot3D in such a way that I get a fixed size graph that does not change when it is initially clicked by the mouse?
Thank you! I'm relatively new to Stack Exchange. Please let me know if there is anything I am doing that is not following protocol. Thank you!
