in last dev you should be able to toggle between floating figure `%pylab [backend]` and inline `%pylab inline`.

You can only chose one [backend] and stick with it after or restart the kernel. 

you can also stay in floating figure and do 
```
from IPython.display import display
display(gcf()) #get current figure
```

Does this answer your question ?
