Afterwards call the next for updating the latex format files.
initexmf --dump=latex

FOr PDFlatex, replace in both cases latex with pdflatex

Oh, I missed this section after pause. Now it works like a charm! Thanks a lot!

REFLINEXYZ
Plot 3D reference lines to the YZ-, XZ- and XY-planes

A very nice tool! But a short question for the example. In the logo of this function (in the upper left corner of this page) you managed to draw also the shadowed line into the xy plane, the example comes without the plot in the xy plane. Could you please provide the full example which created the logo file?? - 1000 thanks!!!

Very great package, thanks a lot! But I have a small problem I can't fix. I need to add "mark repeat=25" as an extra parameter in the "\addplot" option list. But I cannot figure out how to do it. 'extraTikzpictureSettings' puts it before the \addplot environment. Is there a change to add an input variable fixing this problem? Thanks again!

@Ragheb: We also have some information on how to tackle your problem in our wiki at https://github.com/matlab2tikz/matlab2tikz/wiki/TeX-capacity-exceeded,-sorry

Hi Ragheb,
To increase memory when using large PGF or TIKZ figures, for MikTEx use the command line:
initexmf --edit-config-file=latex
opens an editor where you can put the new values. E.g.
main_memory=5000000
extra_mem_bot=5000000
font_mem_size=5000000
pool_size=5000000
buf_size=5000000
Afterwards call the next for updating the latex format files.
initexmf --dump=latex
FOr PDFlatex, replace in both cases latex with pdflatex

Why Latex doesn't compile large tikz files?
I have tried matlab2tikz on a three dimensional sphere figure from matlab and it works perfectly because the corresponding tikz file is only 50KB. However, the figures I want to include in the tex file often exceed 100MB! Latex refuses to compile such files giving me the error :" TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [main memory size=5000000]".
Can you please advise me how to solve that problem?
