I would like to copy a matlab figure to my clipboard so I can paste it in Powerpoint as a vector graphic. This is usually very simple, I just choose "metafile" in the cop options. More recently I tried the same thing getting this error message:
Error using print (line 82)
Unable to copy the figure to the clipboard. Increasing the Java Heap Size setting in the MATLAB preferences may
help; otherwise try saving to a file or choose a different clipboard format.
Error in matlab.graphics.internal.copyFigureHelper (line 158)
Error in editmenufcn (line 69)
Error while evaluating Menu Callback.
I followed the suggestion and increased the Java thingy, up to 4 GB, still same problem. The weird thing is, it's actually a rather simple image of only 4 MB. I'd be happy to upload the .fig file here if possible.
Any hints what the problem might be?
