Plotly flickers

New to plotly. Installed as directed, copied example from


this flickers as I move the mouse over the graphic, and only shows it partially. Dell Laptop, Anaconda3, Windows 10

import plotly‘user_name’, api_key=‘api_key’)

import plotly.plotly as py

import plotly.graph_objs as go

import numpy as np

N = 100
random_x = np.random.randn(N)
random_y = np.random.randn(N)

Create a trace

trace = go.Scatter(
x = random_x,
y = random_y,
mode = ‘markers’

data = [trace]

Plot and embed in ipython notebook!

py.iplot(data, filename=‘basic-scatter’)

or plot with: plot_url = py.plot(data, filename=‘basic-line’)

When I click on “EDIT CHART”, that version of the graphic is smoothly interactive.

What am I missing?

Yikes. I’ve never seen or heard of anything like this before.

Would you mind recording a screencast of those flickers to help us debug?


It works now. Gremlins.
