How to save a *.fig with the legend included?

Hi,

My question is quite simple :

I have the following code :

figure;
A = loglog(...)
hold on
B = loglog(...)
C = loglog(...)
      str = sprintf('3SRS - Run %d - Dir %d', run, dir);
      title(str);
      xlabel('Fréquences [Hz]');
      ylabel('Accel (G)');
      legend( [A B C], '...','...','...' );
      filename = str;
      saveas(figure(1),filename,'fig');
      close figure 1

And it appears that the figure is correctly saved in .fig but the legend isn't displayed when i open the saved *.fig

Thanks in advance. O.G.

the code is not work. It's a example or the real code?

Hm yes sorry, it was just an example... The '...' are full filled with my data. I put some '...' because you coudn't acces to my data.

Try this,

 figure;
A = loglog(1:50)
hold on
B = loglog(1:50)
C = loglog(1:50)
      str = sprintf('3SRS - Run %d - Dir %d');
      title(str);
      xlabel('Fréquences [Hz]');
      ylabel('Accel (G)');
      legend( [A B C], 'Test A','Test B','Test C' );
      filename = str;
      saveas(figure(1),filename,'fig');
      close figure 1

As I said above, the '...' are full filled with my data. It's a general scheme where I point out the problem that my legend isn't saved in the .fig figure.

Thanks if you can give me more explanations.

I'm sorry but i don't think it answers my question... Thanks, however.

export_fig (the most downloaded file from the File Exchange, and recommended by the FAQ) will save the entire figure or axes. I'd be surprised if saved everything except the legend.
