Save graphics object hierarchy to file
hgsave is not recommended. Use
hgsave(filename) saves the current figure to
a file named
filename as a
character vector or string.
hgsave(h,filename) saves the objects
identified by the array of handles
h to a file named
filename. If you do not specify an extension for
filename, then the extension .
fig is appended.
h is a vector, none of the handles in
h may be
ancestors or descendents of any other handles in
hgsave(...,'-v6') saves the FIG-file in a
format that can be loaded by versions prior to MATLAB® 7.
hgsave(...,'-v7.3') saves the FIG-file in a format that can be
loaded only by MATLAB versions 7.3 and above. This format, based on HDF5 files, is intended for
saving FIG-files larger than 2 GB.
When creating a figure you want to save and use in a MATLAB version prior to MATLAB 7, use the
'v6' option with the plotting function
'-v6' option for
hgsave. Check the
reference page for the plotting function you are using for more information.
In MATLAB release R2014b or later, you cannot open a save FIG-file in earlier
versions of MATLAB. Use
savefig to save figures that are
compatible with earlier versions of MATLAB.
Use the File > Export Setup dialog. Use Edit > Copy Figure to copy the figure’s content to the system clipboard. For details, see Customize Figure Interactively Before Saving and Copy Figure to Clipboard from Edit Menu.
