Missing text objects when exporting graphics in R2022b

21 views (last 30 days)
Since upgrading to R2022b, I've repeatedly run into an inssue in which text objects, legends, titles, etc do not get printed, or their position is shifted significantly when I export graphics via exportgraphics or export_fig. I'm trying to find some sort of rhyme or reason, but the problem seems somewhat inconsistent. It may only occur with OpenGL, but I'm not entirely sure.
Is this a known problem? Is there a known fix?
I'm using a MacOS Monterey 12.6.1.

I'm getting the same problem as @Chad Greene on R2022b, MacOS Monterey 12.6 using export_fig. @Manas Shukla can you please provide an update? Thanks!

I expirience the same on R2023a, MacOS 13.6.6, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650, using text() annotations and exportgraphics(). The rest of the figure exports just fine as far as I'm concerned.

This issue can be mapped to the graphics drivers. The issue can be resolved by trying the following:
  1. Updating the driver.
  2. Switching to 'software' or 'hardwarebasic' opengl. The limitations of using the above settings can be found in this link:

@Manas Shukla I'm afraid none of these solutions are viable.
Updating the driver: I'm not entirely sure what you mean by this, but I looked up how to update OpenGL on a Mac, and the google pretty much says it can't be done.
Switching to 'software': The opengl documentation says "This option is not available on Macintosh systems."
Switching to 'hardwarebasic': I tried opengl('save','hardwarebasic'), but the problem persists.

Same behaviour for me. Neither option provides a solution.
