This function shows the orientation of the provided axes plot in the lower left corner. This way the orientation can still be seen when the axis are disabled.
At the moment the code is not very advanced. But it might still be usefull to some people.
f = figure('Color',[0.3 0.3 0.32]);
h = axes('Parent',f);
h - handle of the axes
c1 - x direction color
c2 - y direction color
c3 - z direction color
The 'current axes' are now left untouched by this function.
*Handle visibility of the axes was set to off. This way accidental plots inside the corner axes are prevented.
