How to close editor from the command line?

9 views (last 30 days)
I accidentally opened a huge file in the editor and it won't close, and when I restart Matlab the editor reopens the huge file. Is there a way to close the editor from the Matlab prompt? If it matters, I have several mfiles open in different tabs of the editor, but fine to close them all.

you can call com.mathworks.mlservices.MLEditorServices.closeAll
you can read up all about this on the page
incase the editor ties you up so you still cannot access the command window then try creating a start up file or move the large file from where it is so matlab "errors" when trying to load the file

Use the MATLAB Editor API introduced in release R2011a.
