To all Matlab R2014b users:

As the graphic engine of Matlab R2014b contains major changes some functionality is no more compatible. The svg format is finally supported natively. Unfortunately, the resulting files are sometimes very big. The latest version of plot2svg can be found on git

https://github.com/jschwizer99/plot2svg

The current version available contains first changes needed for Matlab R2014b support. Please also report bugs there.

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.
