Where does Qiskit put the rendered figure created by
Qiskit does not save the rendered
Figure of the circuit anywhere, unless you provide a
filename to the call.
In regards to having the
Figure render and stay open, you simply need to remove a line of code. If you go to where qiskit is installed in your environment, go into the file
qiskit/visualization/matplotlib.py, and go to line 436 you will see the line
plt.close(self.figure). Comment this line out, and run your program again. You should see the
Figure in a new window.
