Matlab has been automatically slanting my xTickLabels even when the font size is not that big and can fit the x-axis just fine without angled.
Is there a way to force it to be angled at 0-degrees (i.e., not slanted)?
Many thanks!

You can use set(gca(),'XTickLabelRotation',0);
To demonstrate:
figure();
plot(1:10);
set(gca(),'XLim',[1 10],'XTick',1:0.5:10,'Fontsize',16); % automatically rotated
figure();
plot(1:10);
set(gca(),'XLim',[1 10],'XTick',1:0.5:10,'Fontsize',16,'XTickLabelRotation',0); % force to horizontal
