Hi everyone,
I would like to enlarge the legend box size (height), I tried to use [set(hleg1,'position',[x0 y0 width height])]
and [textobj = findobj(hobj1, 'type', 'text');set(textobj, 'Interpreter', 'latex', 'fontsize', 15);] but didn't work..
any help,
Thanks in advance, Riyadh

You need to use the handle to the legend which you create when you call legend(). The height is the 4th value of the Position parameter. Here I set the height to 10.
lh = legend('BlankLegend');
lh.Position(4) = 10;

I made up the name legenHandle - you are supposed to substitute that with your variable name that stores the legend handle.
So I think my hunch is correct. 0.05 and 0.1 are both too small to fit your legend text so the code is ignoring your requesting and fitting the legend to the text. 0.2 is too big. So if you keep playing around with it, you'll find the right size.
There are lots and lots of legend properties you can use to control the appearance of your legend. Try changing the number of columns, for example.
