Live script plots not showing or overwriting

107 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to plot 2 separate figures in the livescript, however it seems they are overwritting themselves and it only shows the second one.
If I put a break point right before the second plot, both appear in the code and the first one does not dissapear, what can I do?
here it is the code from the live script (file attached as well):
%1.figure 1
clc;clear all;close all;
f = @(x) 2*cosh(x/4)-x;
x = linspace(0,10,1000);
plot(x, f(x));
hold on
line([0 10], [0 0])
hold off
%2.figure 2
clc; clear all; close all;
f = @(x) 2.*cosh(x/3)-x;
df= @(x) (-0.5).*sinh(x/4)-1;
x = linspace(0,10,1000);
plot(x, f(x));
hold on
line([0 10], [0 0])
hold off

clc; clear all; close all;
This is the root of your problem, this line clears all the data, variables, plots etc (basically any item in the workspace) and closes any figure you have generated before. Remove it and you should be good to go.
In general practice, I don't think there is any need to use this line in a script or a function. Read more about it here

I'm having the same problem, and nothing going with clc/clear/close, as I don't use those at the beginning of scripts.
So far closing and reopening has not worked. VERY frustrating.

@Adithya, is your problem the same as OP's i.e. plots not showing in Live script?
Also, please post your whole code, so I can reproduce the behaviour and provide any suggestion/solution.
