# Figure title/labels in LaTex cutoff

Hi. If you run a code like title('$$\frac{1}{2}$$','interpreter','latex','fontsize',20) Matlab will set the title '1/2' on a figure window, neatly written in LaTex. However, the estimated size of this text is smaller than it really is, so the upper most part is cut off from the figure (hidden underneath the menubar)

I've tried to come up with a general solution using position, outerposition, extent, etc... But I haven't had any luck. The same is the case for x- & ylabels, written with LaTex.

Anyone out there who has a solution, or is up for the challenge to find one? Thank you!

I found this suggestion from http://automatica.dei.unipd.it/tl_files/utenti/varagnolo/matlab/HowToMakePrettyFiguresWithMatlab.pdf

% in order to make matlab to do not "cut" latex-interpreted axes labels %

set(gca, ’Units’,’normalized’, ’Position’,[0.15 0.2 0.75 0.7]);

Then play around with the values in 'Position' until the frame looks right.

Apparently, this won't work in TiledLayout: "Setting this property has no effect when the parent container is a TiledChartLayout."

Any other solutions? My colorbar label is being cut off.

what if you adjust the font size? title('$$\frac{1}{2}$$','interpreter','latex','fontsize',10) looks acceptable to me when the figure is in its default window size.

title('$$\frac{1}{2}$$','interpreter','latex','fontsize',20) looks good when the figure window is in full screen.

xlabel('time $t$','Interpreter','latex');

fig('units','centimeters','width',14,'height',4,'font','Helvetica','fontsize',16)
