I'm making a combo chart in Matlab, using plot, bar and scatter. I have attached it for you to see.
I would like to make the legend smaller. The only scope for shrinking it seems to be by shrinking the markers for the first three legend entries, i.e. the black and grey bars, and the blue line. Do they have to be so long? Can I make them shorter?
Thanks in advance!

There is no particular attribute to shrink legend without changing font-size.
Try using:
l = legend
l.NumColumns = 2;
Other attributes like "Location" can be used to adjust the position of legend.
