Hello,
I am running a script in my computer where any scatter plot turns up empty. I have run the same script in another computer where it had no problem so there is no error in the cod to cause this.
Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? I am using Matlab 2017a.
Thank you!

scatter([1 2 3], [1 2 3]);
set(gcf, 'renderer', 'painters')
Sometimes there's a bug that prevents the graphics card from properly drawing the figures generate by Matlab via the OpenGL renderer (default). It's been an on and off bug for a while:
You could use this to set the default renderer for all figures generated:
set(0, 'DefaultFigureRenderer', 'painters')
