I discovered bodegraph package lately and I found out that it allows drawing step responses on the package documentation. So I copy-pasted the code on page 19 as a first try but the desired graph doesn't show.




}{[right]{\small 1}}
}{[right]{\small 2}}


The actual output : enter image description here

I know that I can create the same graph using pgfplot , but I'd like to use bodegraph only.

  • When compiling with pdfLateX with the latest version of MikTeX, I get the same result as on page 19 of the documentation. Which compilation engine do you use? Is your LaTeX distribution up to date?

  • The last MikTeX version is (MiKTeX 20.6.29). You can find it by compiling any document and looking at the first line of the .log file.

So the problem is due to the gnuplot software, just installing it won't be enough, it needs to be on Windows PATH. It can be done by checking the box Add gnuplot to PATH during the install procedure or add it manually like shown here enter image description here
