how can continue plotting by pyFoamPlotRunner.py after stopping in same figure?
 
when I'm running a case and stop it for any reason maybe look at the results till now in paraFoam and start again running some new figures are open and residuals are shown in them while I want to see their continue in same figures they were plotted not new figures.
how to resolve?is possible at all?

I think it may be impossible at this time by pyFoamPlotRunner.py ,isn't it?

isn't there any way for having always only one figure even in stop and start situation?:)

You don't have to stop the case to look at it. Open another terminal and call paraFoam there. You will "only" see the timesteps that were there when you started the post-processor.

About your plot problem: PyFoam only plots the data of the current run. What you want to get (a continuing plot) can' be done without copying/editing files
