So far I've found a way to lable the radial axis, but one of my old tests asks me to lable the x-axis, and I can't figure out a way to do it. Is there a version of this for the x axis? I'm supposed to name it 't'. Any help is appriciated!

ax = polaraxes;

ax.RAxis.Label.String = 'r';

Actually, that's not entirely true. You could set the position property, though it's operating on the same principle as text.

polarplot([0 pi/2 pi],[1 2 3])

ax = gca;

d = ax.ThetaDir;

ax.ThetaDir = 'clockwise';

title('Clever Title');

You can label polar axes with text objects. I find the following positioning works well as a default... you may need to play around with coordinates, horizontal and vertical alignment, and rotation to find a combination that works best for you:

rmax = 2;

hax = polaraxes('RLim', [0 rmax]);

text(0, rmax/2, 'R Axis Label', 'horiz', 'center', 'vert', 'top', 'rotation', 0);

text(pi/4, rmax*1.2, 'Theta Axis Label', 'horiz', 'center', 'rotation', -45);
