Hi, As the title says, I can not edit the plot in matlab, when I double click the plot to edit, the plot is killed with these error messages on the browser:

Can you edit the plot if you disable/mirror the second monitor?

No, I tried that too, but still the same problem, I even tried to install matlab again, now the problem is like this:

What Linux distribution (e.g., Ubunutu and Fedora) are you using? What desktop environment are you using (e.g., Gnome and KDE)? What version of Java are you using?
You may want to post this the answers to these questions in your new thread. The problem, at this point, has nothing to do with dual monitors.

If you docked the figures to the figures to the desktop of matlab it might have created the issue, at least it did it for me.
You might use "set(0,'DefaultFigureWindowStyle','normal')" to set it back right.
