I'm running R2016b on Mac OS X version 10.10.5.
When copying a figure and pasting into Powerpoint, I'm losing the figure's title and xlabel.
This happens with a copy/paste and also when I "save as" to a jpeg or print to a pdf.

I'm on Max OS X version 10.10.5 running R2015b, and I'm not encountering any problem like that - it seems weird that the newer version would have such an issue, would you mind providing code that produces a plot that doesn't copy over correctly?

It seems to happen with any plot.
>> x=0:10;y=x.^2;plot(x,y)
>> title('Sample plot');ylabel('y=x^2');xlabel('x')
Then, in the figure's menu I choose Edit, Copy Figure, and then paste it into Powerpoint. The top and bottom are cropped, and I have to use Format, Picture, Crop within Powerpoint to un-crop. I've attached a screenshot.
This didn't happen for me, either, on earlier releases. Thanks for any help.
