Hi all,
So, I'm creating a surface plot in which I added the values to the contour lines. I need the text to be larger, but when I try to increase the font size, some of the text does not "fit" inside the figure window. I attached a screen shot of what I'm describing here, as well as my code to generate the figure. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or help on how to solve this formatting issue.
********************************************
figure
[C,h] = contourf(X,Y,AP_Z,'ShowText','on','LineWidth',1,'Color',[0.5 0.5 0.5]);
set(gca,'YTick',[-10:5:10])
clabel(C,h,'FontSize',15,'Color','k')
c = colormap('Gray')
********************
Thanks!
Rachel

You can either include the option 'manual' in your clabel call and use your mouse to place the labels; or you can use the 'LabelSpacing' option to play around a bit (see http://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/clabel.html#input_argument_namevalue_labelspacing).

Udit,
Thanks for your response! I tried the manual setting, and it wasn't sensitive enough to put the text where it needed to be. I like the spacing suggestion, though! That should work well; thanks again!
