I'm getting tired of GUIDE bogging down. Is there a way to convert my .fig file to a programmatic GUI (other than manually)? Or some way to help me do it manually like get a listing of the controls and their positions or something.

I recently wrote a code which does just that. Check the youtube video explanation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CFl3ItzFeE&t=40s&pbjreload=10 and from the video's description you could get the code

You can export a GUIDE GUI to a single file from within GUIDE. From here it would be easier to deGUIDEify the various callbacks and turn everything into subfunctions/nested functions.
Frankly though, it can be really difficult to successfully modify the architecture of GUIDE GUIs. I would just recommend starting over with OOP or regular programmatic guis.
Especially with OOP, it's very straightforward to get your feet wet and have functional GUIs really quickly.
