Set whether constrained_layout is used upon drawing. If None, the rcParams[‘figure.constrained_layout.use’] value will be used.

When providing a dict containing the keys w_pad, h_pad the default constrained_layout paddings will be overridden. These pads are in inches and default to 3.0/72.0. w_pad is the width padding and h_pad is the height padding.
