Just updated to R2014b and printing a figure to a file seems to be broken. For example, even this minimal example taken directly from the print help yields the following error:
>>h = figure; >>plot(1:4,5:8) >>print(h) Error using printopt Too many input arguments.
Error in (line 114)
Error in printjob (line 22) pj =;
Error in print>LocalCreatePrintJob (line 337) pj = printjob([handles{:}]);
Error in print (line 153) [pj, inputargs] = LocalCreatePrintJob(varargin{:});
Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like you might have a function named printopt that is conflicting with the one the is shipped with MATLAB. What results do you get when running the following code?
which -all printopt
There should be just one entry under matlab\toolbox\local. If there are any others, rename them or move them to a location that is not on your MATLAB path.
