# Using plot handle to replot a graph

In my project, I make an array of graphs. If one of the graphs is interesting, I would like to copy that graph with all of its formatting to a separate figure. I would like to do something like this. I know I could just replot everything, but a lot goes into each graph, and this seems like it should be possible.

x = 0:0.1:10;

y = [sin(x);cos(x);tan(x)];

for i = 1:3;

subplot(1,3,i)

p(i) = plot(x,y(i,:));

end

figure

plot(p(2))

x = 0:0.1:10;

y = [sin(x);cos(x);tan(x)];

for i = 1:3;

a(i) = subplot(1,3,i);

p(i) = plot(x,y(i,:));

end

f = figure;

copyplot = copyobj(p(2), gca); % copy the plot from subplot 2 to the newly created axis in f
