PreserveImageOptions

PreserveImageOptions
is an option to graphics and related functions that specifies whether image size and certain other options should be preserved from the previous version of a graphic if the graphic is replaced by a new one in output.
  • PreserveImageOptions->Automatic specifies that image options from the previous version of a graphic should be used if there are no explicit settings for the options in a new graphic.
  • PreserveImageOptions->True specifies that any image option setting manually changed by interactive manipulation in the previous version of a graphic will overwrite the setting for that option in a new graphic. If no manual change was made in the previous version, then any explicit setting in the new version will be used, but if there is no such explicit setting, then any setting from the old version will be used.
Explicitly dragging the image size in the graphic "disconnects it" from the control:
Do not preserve explicit settings for the image size, leaving it connected to the control:
By default, Manipulate preserves manual resizing of the graphic:
Change the graphic back to its original specified size every time the control is moved:
