Loading a .fig file in MATLAB without losing information

8 views (last 30 days)
Hi everyone,
I hope you're all doing well. I have a question about loading *.fig files in MATLAB. When I use the openfig function, I notice that the figure is opened without any loss of information, preserving all its components, compared to using get on some children.
I'm interested in loading a file in the *.fig format and incorporating it into a figure, for instance, within a subplot, while ensuring that no information is lost. Could someone guide me on the best approach for achieving this?
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
Best regards,

h1 = openfig('test1.fig','reuse'); % open existing/ saved figure
ax1 = gca; % get handle to axes of figure
h2 = figure; % create new figure
s1 = subplot(2,1,1); % create and get handle to the subplot axes
fig1 = get(ax1,'children'); % get handle to all the children in the figure
copyobj(fig1,s1); % copy children to new parent axes i.e. the subplot axes
