Problem saving plot as jpg or pdf

4 views (last 30 days)
My matlab code is saving the plot of 6 subplots. But, when I open the saved version, the legend is blocking the plots. I am also using the 'best' for location of legend. Is there any way to correct it so that plots occupy full space and legend don't block the plots?

Below is saving code used:
saveas(gcf,['Monthly plot from ' ,datestr(Yr_Avg.dd(j)),'to',datestr(Yr_Avg.dd(j+2)),'.pdf']);
MATLAB: R2018a

I don't have much direct experience w/ trying to export MATLAB graphics -- it's certainly been an arena of much discussion over the years...
With that many lines and subplots, the legend will have to be tiny to not occlude the data -- also with releases prior to R2020a which introduced exportgraphics, the only way to have any additional control over sizes, etc., is to use print instead of saveas -- it has no additional control available, "what you get is what you get".

You could try to add the legend outside the actual axes, e.g. 'eastoutside', have a look here:
