MATLAB sees these functions as myfolder.my_file (taking your example).

You have to use the syntax folder.mfile(vars), where "folder" is the folder name with the "+" before it and "mfile" is the function.

Matlab does not allow you to add class directories or package directories individually to the path.
You have to add the parent directory instead and the class/package directory then gets automatically added.

Trying to edit a file from command line is a different action from Matlab being able to find the code to run the functions.
Having a package parent folder added to the path allows the latter, but for the former you will likely have to give a full path or path relative to your working directory because the package folders are not themselves on the path.

This is due to "+" symbol in your folder name. Change it and you can add it. I faced the same issue and can only ammend the folder name for addpath to work. Bugs maybe?

The + defines that the folder is a package. Without it the folder is no longer a package so getting rid of it will not be helpful at all.
