Hello everybody,
I was wondering what the units of "x", "y", "width" and "height" in the "Position" field of app.UIFigure are? They can't be pixels because while the app is almost fullscreen on my 14" FHD laptop it's way smaller on my FHD 23" monitor. It would be ideal though if x,y, width and height would be meassured in pixels. This would increase the compatibility of apps between different screen sizes. Is there any way to set the width and height in pixels or percent so that an app is fullscreen on all FHD devices? Resizing is not an option, because it just does not work reliably!
Thank you, Christian

The documentation states that the Units property is 'pixels'. What's the value shown for the ScreenPixelsPerInch property of the groot object on your two systems? Are those values different?
If you want to make your uifigure fullscreen, set its WindowState property to 'fullscreen'.

Steven, my bad. Actually I should've come up with this idea by myself! Using groot you can see, that Matlab does not see the 1080p in laptop mode, because of the 150% scaling in windows settings.
What is the current workaround for this?
