The function is aimed at fast setting the figure fonts and line sizes to a comfortable viewing and exporting and is best suited to plots whose result is difficult to adjust (for example the step, impulse and bode plots of the control toolbox, to name a few).
The function is useful during lectures or tutorials when the figure size has to be easily adjusted for better viewing.
The name of the function is partially chosen so, that it can be promptly typed on QWERTY keyboard (where "s", "d" and "f" are adjacent letters).
The function help follows:
SDF Set the line width and fonts of a figure
where fig is the figure number. If the figure number is omitted, the currently active figure is updated. Edit the file to set you own style settings.
applies a pre-configured style from the File-->Export Setup menu of the figure's window. The stylename should be one of the 'Export Styles' section of the dialog.
The function allows applying the same settings as through the File-->Export Setup-->Apply menu of the figure, but much faster and without the annoying clicking.
figure(1); t=0:0.1:10; plot(t, sin(t));

Amazing function. Thank you
Saving a lot of time, Thanks
Somehow very slow after the style is applied. It is exporting some dummy image and takes a long time for high resolution images.
Simple to use and efficient. Thank you!
This is cool and what I need!
exactly what I was looking for!
Just one Q: the dimension of figure from SDF with 'PowerPoint' is 876x656, but the one I got when actually clicking File-->Export Setup-> Load Style ->PowerPoint is only 561x420, why is this? Both pictures have similar dimension when imported in PowerPoint, so there's another resolution for them?
now, the next step to get the 5th star:
1) add an output arg, which returns the current STYLE struct...
2) now, a user can change fields to his/her liking - and save it...
3) allow the user to enter his/her (modified) struct...
all done in a split...
and a big enhancement to an already nice function...
Thanks for the idea. Already implemented.
it would be nice, if a user could also input the name of his/her style sheet:
add this to the engine
if nargin == 1
% your code
% note: REMOVE extension, which is .txt by def
% ...apply style sheet info
just a thought...
Added possibility to use a pre-recorded Style
