Asked by John

Hi there,

Could anybody advise me on how to copy a plot from matlab into a word document and keep a good quality format?

When I choose 'copy figure' and paste into word the quality is not good.

I put together an example here https://dl.dropbox.com/u/54057365/All/help.JPG Appreciate any comments.

Regards

Print the diagram to a EPS file:

print FigureHandle -depsc2

This looks bad on the screen, because you see the pixel-preview only, but when printed to paper or a PDF the vector-image is used, such that the result is very sharp and clear.

Try this

figure;
[X,Y] = meshgrid(-8:.5:8);
R = sqrt(X.^2 + Y.^2) + eps;
Z = sin(R)./R;
mesh(Z);
saveas(gca,'filename.tif')
