I use a startup script to set my default figure font size to 18 point using the following command.
I default the figure style to 'docked' so this size works well for me. My issue is that this also changes the font size in live scripts.
When using live scripts with 18p figure font the axis area ends up quite small. I would perfer to use 10p font for live script figures. Setting the 'DefaultAxisFontSize' to 10 allows for small defualt font, however I would like to have two setting.
Is it posible to define two defaults, one for live scripts and one for other figures? Thanks

Hi James,
I understand that you need to set different font sizes for figure in live script window and for the same when opened separately in figure window.
Unfortunately, the graphics root is the same for figures live scripts and all the rest of MATLAB, so you cannot specify a graphics property specific to all live scripts but not to other figures. However, you can use the same syntax to specify default properties for a specific figure or axes.
Please refer to the following documentation for more details:
Hope this helps!
