Is Live editor included in the Matlab licence or a separate program?

10 views (last 30 days)
I use Matlab as unviersity teacher and would like to try Live editor with my students. Is it included in the Matlab licence we have, that is supposed to contain all tookboxes, or is it a separate program. If it is, from which version of the program and how do I access it?
Thank you for your help.

Live scripts (along with the live editor) were introduced in R2016a. They are a part of base Matlab (so it doesn't require any toolboxes and is available with every type of license).
In R2021b the normal editor and the live editor were (mostly) merged, expanding the normal editor with several features previously only available in live scripts (e.g. the auto-complete with custom functionSignatures.json files).
Whether or not it suites your needs depends on specific details that I can't access, as I don't work for Mathworks. You might also want to look into things like Jupyter notebooks with Matlab.

Thank you! I see what you mean and found it now in my version from 2017.
