Survey: Changes in Support for Printer Drivers and Graphics Formats in MATLAB
We are planning to remove a number of printer driver and graphics file export options in a future version of MATLAB. This page explains our plans and lets you provide feedback on the following:
- How you use the
- How the proposed changes might impact your workflow and your use of our products
Rationale for Changing Supported Drivers and Formats
The MathWorks is planning to use existing operating system (OS) support
for printer drivers, output devices, and graphics file formats. Because
of this change, you will not be able to choose certain print devices and
graphics formats when using the
print –d and
saveas commands in a future release of MATLAB.
You will still be able to use the affected printers with MATLAB if your OS provides the appropriate hardware drivers. However, you will not be able to use the
print –d command to print directly to such devices from MATLAB.

Disabling the Warning Message
Continuing to use drivers and formats slated for removal will generate warning messages. To disable the warning messages, use the commands below.
For deprecated printer drivers:
For deprecated graphics file formats:
Note that once this functionality is removed, the warning will become an error.
Tell The MathWorks About Your Usage of These Output Formats
Understanding which printing devices and graphics file formats you depend on, and how you use them, will help us plan how we might enhance our product and continue to provide high quality support.
Please complete the survey below and tell us how you use these features. The survey consists of nine questions. It should take approximately five minutes to complete. We greatly appreciate your input.
