Dear Catarina,

Many thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, plot2svg has at the moment no support for depth sorting of graphics objects. Only depth sorting of surfaces is supported. To support an universal dept-sorting I have to design a z-buffer algorithm from scratch or use a c++/java library. Or I would need access to the Matlab internals. At the moment, my plot2svg has to generate the svg elements just from the user data. Also the svg element saving has to be changed as I need some further buffering and sorting before writing the svg file. Thus, it would be a major change.
For your application, you have to split the line into two parts and sort the elements according their z-position in the view space. There are some code fragments in the plot2svg code that do the same thing for surfaces.
I'm sorry that I can give you no better advice at the moment. Let's hope that the Matlab graphics engine itself gets some upgrading with improved support of all the new technologies like svg, filters, animation, ...

% Example how to adjust your figure properties for
% publication needs (answer to Aslak Grinsted's question)
s = figure;
% Select the default font and font size
% Note: Matlab does internally round the font size
% to decimal pt values
set(s, 'DefaultTextFontSize', 10); % [pt]
set(s, 'DefaultAxesFontSize', 10); % [pt]
set(s, 'DefaultAxesFontName', 'Times New Roman');
set(s, 'DefaultTextFontName', 'Times New Roman');
% Select the preferred unit like inches, centimeters,
% or pixels
set(s, 'Units', 'centimeters');
pos = get(s, 'Position');
pos(3) = 8; % Select the width of the figure in [cm]
pos(4) = 6; % Select the height of the figure in [cm]
set(s, 'Position', pos);
set(s, 'PaperType', 'a4letter');
% From SVG 1.1. Specification:
% "1pt" equals "1.25px"
% "1pc" equals "15px"
% "1mm" would be "3.543307px"
% "1cm" equals "35.43307px"
% "1in" equals "90px"

Hi Felix, many thanks for the feedback! Bug 1 is already implemented together with additional tex elements. These changes will soon be published together with a minor label bugfix. I was not able to reproduce bug 2 & 3. Could you please send me an example. Many thanks. Juerg.

Hi Cesar Roda Neve,
This is not a bug in plot2svg. It's a limitation of Inkscape and Firefox. Other browsers like Opera or Chrome can handle it. The SVG code for sub and super script is conform to the SVG 1.1 specification. I'm aware of the limitation and will try to find a workaround for Inkscape and Firefox.

Hi All

I have an issue getting plot2svg working on matlab 2014b, whereas it worked perfectly before.

Initially I had the some problem as Mirko, but I was able to fix it using the comments below. I now get the following errors:

Warning: Unhandled child type: contour
Warning: Unhandled main figure child type: colorbar

The code produces an svg file but the axes are empty and there is no colorbar.

Sorry, my fault, I fixed the error thanks to Jeff suggestion.

I'm using this function since long time ago, but now I upgrated matlab to R2014b version and it isn't working anymore!

I get this msg error:

Error using str2num (line 32)
Requires string or character array input.

Error in plot2svg>exponent2svg (line 2429)
numlabels =
str2num(get(ax,'XTickLabel'));

Evidently str2num used to work on cell arrays? To get it to work I had to change line 2451 from
numlabels(ix) = str2num(axlabely{ix});
to
numlabels(ix) = str2double(axlabely{ix});

Otherwise, it does just what I need, thanks!
