orgfigs ("organize figures") is a function that helps to display all open
figure windows in an orderly fashion on the screen. It will also bring
all figures windows to the front, such that they can all be viewed
simultaneously. To maximize viewable plot data, the menu bar on top of
each figure will be obscured by the row of figures above.
SYNTAX: orgfigs(Name,Value,...)
orgfigs can be called without any arguments, in that case
orgfigs will try to find the best values
by choosing a suitable N x N grid.
The user can fix any number of the following variables:
Name: Description:
'FigureWidth' Fix figure width
'FigureHeight' Fix figure height
'NrOfFigsHor' Number of figures per row
'NrOfFigsVer' Number of figures per column
NOTE that the choosing inappropriate values may lead to (some)
figures being placed off-screen or stuck against the border. At
the moment the program does not warn for this.
