Easily Create Publishable Ready Figures. Change Font Size, Line Width and Background Color. Makes all Axis Labels the same Precision.

Great used with export_fig, but even on its own it makes great looking figures. Easily make a set of consistent figures for reports, publications, or other applications where it is important to have professional looking graphs.
This file doesn't require any toolboxes or extra files.

syntax: pubgraph(FigureHandle, FontSize, LineWidth, Color)

Example:
x=rand(50,1);x=sort(x);
y=rand(50,1);y=sort(y);
h=figure; plot(x,y,'o')
xlabel('Time (s)'), ylabel('People')
pubgraph(h,14,2,'w')

Note: This doesn't save the figures. You can do this using the save button on the figure toolbar or using export_fig or other Matlab Central Files.

Also: I have a pretty old version of Matlab, if someone with a newer version could check it out and see if it throws errors, and leave a comment, that would be great!
