How to fix plots and image color rendering on Notebooks?

wschoi

I am currently running dark mode for my Databricks Notebooks, and am using the "new UI" released a few days ago (May 2023) and the "New notebook editor."

Currently all plots (like matplotlib) are showing wrong colors.

For example, denoting:

```

...

plt.figure()

plt.axvline(x=0, color='red')

plt.axhline(y=0, color='red')

...

```

is resulting in teal colored axes. Images also seem to have their colors and hues mixed up.

Is there a way to fix this without giving up any of my current settings for the notebook environment?

Thanks in advance.

Below is a very simple example of the issue.

I denote the colors "red" for the axes and "blue" for the actual plot, but end up with teal colored axes and a yellow plot.

This is the same for any type of non-text output in the notebook environment, including images, which is the main cause of concern as it can make modeling and other tasks a bit confusing.

Not sure if there is a setting I missed, or if this is some kind of an issue.

Hello all,

Thank you @wschoi for reporting this issue. I've lost a lot of time trying to figure out if my image plotting was wrong.
