Is there a figure tab in desktop matlab (R2022b)?

8 views (last 30 days)
Matlab online has a figure tab to make it easier to adjust the layout of graphs plotted in matlab online so it would be useful to have one in desktop matlab as well - perhaps there is already but it doesn't come up when plotting and I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know if there is a figure tab in desktop matlab and if so, how to activate it
I guess all of the functions are there somewhere in desktop matlab but they are in a wide range of different places and some are exceedingly difficult to find - so difficult in some case, I haven't found them all yet.
I am trying to write simple guides for our students, some of whom will be unsing desktop matlab, others using matlab online and having features of one absent from the other makes this very difficult, it also makes it difficult for new users to transition from one to the other.

Yes, but only if you are using a live script. Click on the figure to select it, and the Figure tab will appear.

Thank Cris, that solved the problem - unfortunately our students haven't got on to livescripts at this stage

If you are talking about the "PLOTS" tab, yes it is there.

no, not the plots tab but the figure tab - in matlab online, the figure tab comes up once a plot has been plotted but as Cris LaPierre shows, the figure tab only comes up in desktop matlab (R2022b) when the plot is produced by a livescript, and not via the plots tab.
