i have names like:
roc_file_name =
  1. how can i avoid the lower case in legend?
  2. How can i open new legends "on the fly" (somethink like hold on for plots)
And another question, by the way -
if I have a full path:
ans = '/home/user/workspace/QT/Software_2.0_QT/IO/Motor_Set_1/AKG_C1000S/Distance_0.5m/Scenario_M1/003_m1_30_90_ramp_20200611_200632/003_m1_30_90_ramp_20200611_200632_SNR_F1_PLL.mat'
can I easy convert to
short_name = 'MS1/AKG/0.5m/M1/003' or short_name = 'MS1_AKG_0.5m_M1_003' or simmilar?
Thank you!

Try this:
legend('003_m1_30_90_ramp_20200611_200632_SNR_F1_PLL.mat', 'Interpreter','none')
It ‘turns off’ the existing interpreter for that legend object only. (This also works for other text objects.)

That may be.
The only work-around I am aware of is to replace the underscores (_) with backslant-underscores (\_).
Try this:
You can do it manually if you like. I use strrep here.

Another option:
hl = legend('003_m1_30_90_ramp_20200611_200632_SNR_F1_PLL.mat');
set(hl, 'Interpreter','none')
I have not needed to do this in years, so I just now remembered it:
