Editing Objects with the Variables Editor

You can use the MATLAB Variables Editor to edit object properties. To open an object in the Variables Editor, you can double-click the object name in the Workspace browser or use the openvar command:

tsobj = timeseries(rand(10,1),.01:.01:.1,'Name','Data1');
openvar tsobj

See View, Edit, and Copy Variables for more information.
