I'm using export_fig with the following command (both options are necessary for me):
The program is great but it crops the figure so that the boundary of the png file touches the title and labels text, as the example illustrates. Is there a way to modify the crop so that it leaves a little bit of space around the title and the labels? Thanks.

I thought export_fig had a -p switch to let you specify padding. If not, a workaround might be to use multi-line plot titles and labels to pad your labels with blank extra lines, e.g.,
xlabel({'Label Text',' ',' ',' '})

Thanks for the suggestions, Matt! Export_fig does indeed have a padding option, but it didn't work in the version I was using. I've updated the software and it looks as though it's fixed in the new one.

You might have to read it in as an image, then use padarray() or regular assignment to pad the edges. Then save it back out. Unless export_fig() has such a padding option already.
