Agree with Peter. It would be great if it there was a way to re-do the labels when the figure wasa resized. Still a great module.

Peter Krug

Addendum to my previous user review posting: Since this application necessarily leaves the XTickLabelMode, etc in 'manual' mode, the tick labels do not behave sensibly if the graph is subsequently resized. For example, if tlprintf.m created X axis labels 0 1 2 3 and the graph is then enlarged so it now has 6 tick marks, the ticks will be labelled 0 1 2 3 0 1 2, which is not useful. Therefore I've downgraded my rating to 3.
Why doesn't Matlab have a tick label format property?

Peter Krug

Perfectly solves a formatting issue for axis labels: How to specify fixed point (integer) tick labels, instead of the default exponential labels for large integers. Thanks!
