Almost all my plots have time on the x-axis so I was wondering if I could change the label to read 'Time [sec]' by default.
I have been looking into the get(groot,'factoryAxes') properties and it seems I can change the xlabel with set(groot,'defaultAxesXlabel'). However, when I change it to set(groot,'defaultAxesXlabel','Time [sec]') I get an error:
Error using gca While setting the 'Parent' property of Axes: Value must be a handle.
Error in newplot (line 68) ax = gca(fig);
Is this the right approach? Is it even possible to do this?

I have a bunch of plots to make and encountered the same problem.
I've been trying to do exactly the same and tried both: set(0,'defaultAxesXlabel','MyLabel') set(groot,'defaultAxesXlabel','MyLabel').
Gives my exactly the same problem.

Anyone who knows the problem?
