Save Multiple Figures in a click

by

 

14 Feb 2012 (Updated )

Save multiple figures with a GUI in several formats. No need to save all figures one-by-one anymore!

savemultfigs(varargin)
function varargout = savemultfigs(varargin)
% SAVEMULTFIGS is a simple GUI that allows to easily and quickly save 
% multiple figures in several formats in just a few clicks!

% Creation date: 2-14-2012
% Last update:   2-17-2012
%      
% TO-DO:
%   - Ask user if erase existing figures
%   - Default filename = title
%   - Clean code (remove unnecessary callbacks)
%   - Options to saveas (another window. Ex: resolution, etc.)
%   - Load figures directly from gui (to save in different formats)
%   - Problematic display in Mac OS X
%
% See also: GUIDE, GUIDATA, GUIHANDLES

% Edit the above text to modify the response to help savemultfigs
