I'm experiencing some peculiar behaviour (tried on R2012b and R2014a on different Windows PCs):
and we close the figure, the appropriate error is thrown:
Error using ginput (line 112)
Interrupted by figure deletion
whereas if we have
> figure(1); figure(2); ginput();
and we close figure 2, a matlab system error happens and matlab crashes completely. If we close figure 1, and then figure 2, we get the figure deletion error again as expected.
Any ideas how to avoid the matlab crash? try/catching does not work (since it doesn't actually throw an error...)
Edit : It seems the problem is applicable to Windows 8 and 8.1, and not Windows 7.
