The default settings for Matlab figures (plots) use small fonts and thin lines. This is fine for quickly evaluating data, but these figures are unreadable when used in an on-screen presentation such as a Powerpoint. FIXFIG takes an existing Matlab figure and increases the font sizes, thickens the lines, increases marker sizes, sets the background to white, etc., so that the figure can be used in an on-screen presentation.
