I have a program using the following code which procedurally saves .fig files to folders on my network drive?
figs_created = setdiff(figs_after, figs_before);
for j = 1 : length(figs_created)
savefile = fullfile(completed_filepath, baseFileName + " " + "Figure " + j + ".pdf");
saveas(figs_created(j), savefile);
matfile = fullfile(completed_filepath, baseFileName + " " + "Figure " + j + ".fig");
saveas(figs_created(j), matfile);
How to i open these figures once the program is completed?
I can see the figures saved in file explorer, but after double clicking or pressing 'open' nothing happens, how can i view these figures?
