How can I change the style of the axis lines? The a portion of the y-axis coincide with the curve being plotted. So I would like to have the y-axis in a different style (dashed maybe) so that the curve can be identified (plotting the curve in another color is not an option because ultimately the figure will be included in a black and white document). Any ideas?

clc;

close all;

clear all;

pa = 6;

upper_x = 40;

aut_x = 32;

upper_bnd_x=1.1*upper_x;

hours = 1200;

h_x = hours/upper_x;

upper_y =pa*upper_x;

upper_bnd_y=1.1*upper_y;

xlb=0;

xub=upper_bnd_x;

xubtick=upper_x;

n1 = 3;

x2 = linspace(0,upper_x,n1);

y2 = upper_y - pa*x2;

s21 = linspace(0,pa,n1);

s22 = pa.*ones(1,n1);

s23 = linspace(pa,2*pa,n1);

s2 = cat(2,s21,s22,s23);

xs21 = zeros(1,n1);

xs22 = linspace(0,upper_x,n1);

xs23 = upper_x.*ones(1,n1);

xs2 = cat(2,xs21,xs22,xs23);

dt2 = upper_x.*ones(1,n1);

dy2=linspace(pa,4,n1);

dx2=19+2.*dy2;

dt22 = aut_x.*ones(1,n1);

figure

set(gcf,'units','inches','renderer', 'painters');

pos = get(gcf,'pos');

set(gcf,'Units','inches',...

'Position',[pos(1) pos(2) 2.8 2]);

plot(xs2,s2,'Color','black');

xlabel('measure x')

ylabel('measure y')

set(gca,...

'Units','normalized',...

'FontUnits','points',...

'XLim',[xlb xub],...

'XTick',[0,aut_x,xubtick],...

set(gca, 'Position', get(gca, 'OuterPosition') - ...

get(gca, 'TightInset') * [-1 0 1 0; 0 -1 0 1; 0 0 1 0; 0 0 0 1]);

hold on;

plot(dt2,s21,':','color','black');

plot(dt22,s21,':','color','black');

hold off;

This seems to work for me (with the plot in your latest code, and appended just after it):

saveas(gcf, 'John.png');

J = imread('John.png');

figure(2)

image(J)

I had to enlarge it manually to see everything, but it all seemed to be there (in R2015b).

If this doesn’t work as you want it to, I would contact MathWorks Tech Support for help.

My pleasure.

This was an interesting problem. I still have R2014a on this machine (the ‘old’ handle graphics are easier to use in some situations), but I used R2015b here.

I use the PDF suite produced by Tracker Software whenever I have to do a PDF of anything. I’ve used it for years (with updates), and like it.
