I am using the 2016 version of MATLAB (R2016a). I have a figure with three lines which have different colours. I resize the figure window to fit one column but the legend box does not change with it. I have tried to use the position property to change the dimension of the legend but it didn't work. I also tried to reduce the font but this doesn't help when figure is saved in other formats of than fig. I have tried some exchange files (legendmarkeradjust and setLegMarkSize) but still no difference.
I will appreciate it if someone can help me out.

This is a problem in Matlab for quite some time. Customizing legends is quite cumbersome as Matlab tries to make sure that the Legend stays readable. I have written a function to resize a legend ( resizeLegend ) and there is also another function to create more customizable legends ( legendflex ).
