Have you tried, from the MATLAB command line or within a function or script:

     print(fig, '-dmeta') 

where fig is the figure that contains your content?

I seem to remember from the source that the FEX contribution export_fig can do this kind of copying automatically.

thanks for your inputs, l tried the Copyobj, and copy the whole uipanel to a new figure but then the figure is not autofitting to the uipanel, could do it manually but takes away the benefit of the automation. Tried export_fig(), really nice finction but can not pass the uipanel, send a message to the author.

thanks again,

Michael

get() the Position of the uipanel and set() it as the Position of the new figure before doing the copyobj(). You might have to temporarily set() the Units of the uipanel to pixels before get()'ing the Position.

Sometimes what has to be done is to create a second figure, copyobj() the graphics into the new figure, and print() or saveas() or export_fig the new figure.
