If you group the Plot cell and the text cell by highlighting the two
(on a Mac with Apple (aka Command key) held down and click on the two
cell brackets, then do a CTRL-G to group them (but not the plot
output). Then if you double-click on the plot output it stays and the
other two are hidden worked for me on my Mac.
