UFIGPOS: For adjustment of figure positions so that they maintain their
proportions on different screen resolutions and fit on the screen.
Sometimes creating a figure with a manually set Position property will
look good on the machine on which it was created, but become distorted or
not fit on the screen on another machine. This function can be used to
determine the position of the figure after its initial creation and the
screen resolution of the machine on which it was created. When running the
script in which the figure is created on another machine, the outputs of
this function can be used as inputs in the script to ensure the figure
fits on the other machine's screen while maintaining its proportions.


1. In order to get the required inputs on machine on which figure was first created:
[Pos, RawRes] = ufigpos(h);
2. Adjust figure position on any other machine:
ufigpos(h, Pos, RawRes]

Input arguments:

h: Figure-Handle
Pos: (use only in step 2) - Position of the figure determined in
step 1
RawRes: (use only in step 2) - Screen resolution of the machine on
which the original figure was first created (determined in step 1).

Output arguments (step 1):

Pos: Position of the figure
RawRes: Screen resolution of the machine
