graph - fix annotation so that they dont move when converted to .tif/.eps/.pdf

4 views (last 30 days)
Hi,
maybe someone can halp me out with my problem: I want to generate a plot in Matlab with the code below and then convert it to .tif/.eps/.pdf - format (via "export" or "save as . . ." ). However when converting the format the positions of the annotations change (same happens when the plot editor is started).
Is there any command to fix the relative position annotations or to avoid the scaling of the graph when converted to .tif/.eps/.pdf - format?
cheers Patrick

Explicitly define the dimensions of figure and axes with some additional properties:
h.f = figure('color','w','un','pix','pos',[360 150 500 390],...
'PaperPositionM','auto','Invert','off','rend','Painters');
h.a = axes('un','pix','pos',[100,90,350,260],...
'Ylim',[y0,ye],'Ytick',y0:(ye-y0)/yint:ye,...
'Xlim',[x0 xe],'Xtick', x0:(xe-x0)/xint:xe,...
'box','on','fonts',22,'LineW',2,'FontN','times');
hold on
plot(del, y_I , 'b', 'LineWidth', 4)
plot(del, y_II, 'r', 'LineWidth', 4)
% Then to export:
print(gcf, '-depsc2', '-r150','-painters', '-loose', 'figure.eps')
EDIT
Try export_fig to save (on FEX) in pdf.

Thanks Oleg,
i updated the the code and tried to format it, however it doesn't work out. The vector-image contains 2 or more layers (at least that is what infer) which are scaled independently to each other, does anyone know how to fix/pin them together?
Thanks once more Patrick ps: using Version 7.8.0 on Mac
