Hello everyone!
I know that this topic was already discussed a lot (see https://it.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/101806-how-can-i-insert-my-matlab-figure-fig-files-into-multiple-subplots#answer_111153), but i really would like not just to copy axes and lines into the new subplot, but also other features such as legends, grids and titles.
Hope that the question is clear
Thank you!

you can always save the figure as an image and plot the two images
fig1 = openfig('figure1.fig');
print(fig1, '-dtiff', '-r300', hapFigPath('figure1.tif'));
fig2 = openfig('figure2.fig');
print(fig2, '-dtiff', '-r300', 'figure2.tif');
fig3 = figure();
ax(1) = axes('Position', [0.01, 0.01, 0.48, 0.98]);
im1 = imread('figure1.tif');
imshow(im1);
ax(2) = axes('Position', [0.51, 0.01, 0.48, 0.98]);
im2 = imread('figure2.tif');
imshow(im2);

That can help a little bit, but my question was about putting every feature of each figure into a new subplot containing those figures.

fig1 = genFig(101);
fig2 = genFig(102);
fig3 = figure('Position', [100, 100, 900, 500]);
pnlLeft = uipanel(fig3, 'Position', [0 0 0.5 1]);
pnlRight = uipanel(fig3, 'Position', [0.5 0 0.5 1]);
children = fig1.Children;
for i=numel(children):-1:1
children(i).Parent = pnlLeft;
end
children = fig2.Children;
for i=numel(children):-1:1
children(i).Parent = pnlRight;
end
function fig = genFig(n)
x = linspace(-10, 10)';
y = [sin(x), x.^-3, x.^3];
fig = figure(n);
clf(fig);
sui.setPos(fig, [100, 100, 400, 500], 'pixels');
plot(x, y);
legend('sin(x)', 'x.^-3', 'x.^3', 'Location', 'SouthEast');
end
