Physical size of exportgraphics
63 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way to use exportgrapics and have the saved content in a specified physical dimensions?
Currently, I use exportgraphics, and save the figure content as a vector PDF. Then I use InkScape to actually adjust the PDF to a size (in mm) I need. Finally I save it as EPS and have it printed out.
How could I skip the need for InskScape and could save the image content from Matlab directly to a certain size EPS?

exportgraphics does not currently support generating output to match a specified dimension.
If you would find this feature valuable I suggest contacting tech support and request that it be added, and provide information about what capabilities/options this should support.

I have done this by setting the figure properties prior to calling exportgraphics, e.g.
figH = gcf;
set(figH, 'Units', 'centimeters',...
'OuterPosition', [0 0 10 8])
where you can change 10 and 8 for the image width and height, respectively.
