Resizing Legend Box while Exporting in MATLAB Figures

27 views (last 30 days)
I want my MATLAB Figure to be resized to inches.
x = 0:0.01:2*pi;
y = sin(x);
z = cos(x);
y2 = sin(2 * x);
z2 = cos(2 * x);
plot(x, y);
hold on
plot(x, z);
plot(x, y2);
plot(x, z2);
hold off
grid on
legend("sin(x)", "cos(x)", "sin(2x)", "cos(2x)", "orientation", "horizontal");
I changed the Height and Width in File > Exports Setup in the Figure Window.
But the problem is the legend box alone does'nt get scaled accordingly. It ackwardly sticks out in the exported image.
Help me to scale the legend box along with the figure.

In order to resize the legend based on size of the figure, you can configure the Position property of legned. This lets you customize the location of the legend along with its size.

Also see the orientation property. A vertical oriented legend may be better suited for your figure. The numcolumns property may also come in handy if you want more than 1 row or column of legend entries.
