I allready found that one. But that is not really what I want. I have 3 subbplots and some edit/statit fields around it. Now it copys all of them at once then it is pretty much minimized when you copy paste it.

I d rather have the option to select the specific subpplot and edit/static fields on the figure.

Try this. While you are generating the subplot, create a uicontextmenu for each axes that allows a right mouse click and choose to copy. Then, write the callback to copy using "print -dmeta" command.

% Commands to create uicontextmenus

for i = 1:length(justAxes)
      hcmenu = uicontextmenu;
      item = uimenu(hcmenu,'Label','Copy','Callback', @copy_call});
      set(justAxes(i),'uicontextmenu',hcmenu);
  end

% Now the copy_call function has to create a figure with that plot copied on it. Then upe "print -dmeta" command.

function copy_call(varargin)
     currAxes = get(get(get(varargin{1},'parent'),'parent'),'currentAxes');
     newFig = figure('visible','off');
     newHandle = copyobj(currAxes,newFig);
     print(newFig,'-dmeta');
     delete(newFig);

% Right mouse click on individual plots and choose the "copy" option. The "print -dmeta" command puts the plot in the clipboard. Use the paste command on to MS Word or other files.
