I have a problem with capturing the plot in the gui and exporting it to the png. I tried already saveas, export_fig and getframe, but still I am not getting that what I want. Basically I am creating the graph, which can be then modified with the use of displayed tools. And at the end I want to save only the plot in good quality with the "Save plot" button , that would simly screenshot or save the plot with all modifications. It is worth to mention that when I am using previously mentioned fuctions it is saving the screenshot of the whole gui, not just plot. I already checked internet to get the answer, but still my problem is not resolved.
